Katherine Vinnicombe

Investment manager, Foresight Group

Katherine is an investment manager at Foresight Group responsible for originating and executing solar, wind and energy storage transactions, recently leading Foresight's first private wire project, the 72MW Shotwick Solar Farm in Deeside. As an innovative direct supply arrangement, and the largest solar park in the UK, this is an interesting example of how the UK can transition from its fossil fuel dependent centralised model to a low emissions and increasingly smart network, where Foresight are seeking to take a lead. 

Prior to Foresight, Katherine was as an associate director at Lloyds bank, providing construction and project finance across wind, solar, transmission and smart metering sectors, after studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University.
