THE C.E.O. SERIES: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES OF WIND ENERGY
Wind energy has long been an alternative to fossil fuels because it is abundant, renewable, widely distributed and emissions free. In the next installment of the CEO Series, we take a close look at wind energy and how viable it can be in the future.
Jim Spencer, the top executive of New York-based EverPower (www.everpower.com), will join us to shed light on the industry, his company and the economics of wind power. Join Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York, in partnership with Fordham Business School Alumni Club, as we host Mr. Spencer.
Jim Spencer has over 20 years of experience in the power industry managing the development and financing of energy projects in developed and underdeveloped countries. Spencer founded EverPower in 2002 to pursue renewable energy development.

He also served as a director of RES Asia Pacific from its inception until 2004, when he resigned to devote 100% of his efforts to EverPower.

In 1989, he was recruited to the Prudential Capital Corporation where he served as vice president of corporate finance in the Utilities & Finance Group.
