Discussing his background prior to joining the Board of Galaxy Power, Casse said, "Originally, back around 2000 to about 2005, I was involved in a VC firm in Ontario, one of the early ones that was making cleantech Investments. I then moved to Bay Street where I worked as an analyst at some investment firms . I was covering a range of different companies from manufacturing technology, to environmental companies."
"So what really got my attention, around 2010 was, I was looking at the power space and at that time in renewable energy, California started making a big push where they required, under a renewable portfolio standard that 20% of the State's power be generated from renewable sources, like solar and wind. At the same time, there was a very active tax-based incentive for renewable, so that got me very interested in the role of tax incentives driving renewable energy."
Talking about how Galaxy can influence investment in the sector he noted, "In Canada, we need more capital investments. What Galaxy is doing now is spreading the gospel about flow-through shares which have been used so successfully in the mining industry. And we see that structure can be more applicable to the renewable energy industry across Canada. In order to create bigger scale companies that can compete on a worldwide basis, a lot of technology innovation is going to be needed over the next twenty years."
Asked about his vision for Galaxy Power and its role in Canada's cleantech future, he stated, "Well, based on all my years as an analyst and investor and venture capitalist and being involved with small early-stage companies, I've seen some great technology in Canada. We haven't won the long-term game and we haven't scaled-up to the world.stage as well as we could have. In some cases we have but we need more world leaders. We need more development of homegrown technology and I look forward to playing a role in that process."
Thanks, that's it for today. Do something good for this beautiful planet each and every day.
