Phillip Bruner is the CEO of Enian, a platform that makes investment in renewable energy projects easy for investors large and small. In a fascinating podcast with Adam Woodhall (left-side in the show picture), Phil shares both his journey and the challenges and opportunities that renewables is facing. In addition, he gives insightful advice on how to get involved in renewable energy.
Phil is a serial entrepreneur with more than a decade of experience working at every stage of a renewable energy deal from project conception to completion. He is the Founder of the Green Investment Forum, a private dinner club of market leaders in project finance and wealth management.
In this episode Phil shares his personal experiences from Rock n Roll frontman, founding of the Sustainable Community Energy Network, launching Enian and the experience of crowdfunding that they are currently going through.
