Globalscope launches Energy Transition Group

Globalscope, one of the world’s leading networks of independent advisory firms, has today launched the ‘Energy Transition Group’ to co-ordinate cross- border investment transactions in the key sectors which are driving the world’s energy transition to greater sustainability.

The new sector group will focus on originating and executing transactions worldwide in the five main energy transition sub-sectors: (1) Critical Minerals, (2) Renewable Power, (3) Green Hydrogen & Alternative Fuels, (4) Electrification & Efficiency and (5) Carbon & Circular Economy. Globalscope’s Energy Transition Group will be co-led by AWR Lloyd and FICUS Advisory, both with extensive corporate finance advisory experience in the energy sector.

Alex Wood, CEO of AWR Lloyd welcomed the initiative: “Total annual investment in energy transition has doubled since 2015 but will need to triple by 2025 and then double again by 2030 if the world has any chance of achieving ‘Net Zero’ by 2050. The new Energy Transition Group will act as an important catalyst. The Globalscope network is ideally positioned to accelerate cross-border investment into key sectors like critical minerals, green hydrogen, renewables, e-mobility, conservation and recycling”

Mathias Möhrpahl, Partner at FICUS Advisory agreed and added “With around 70% of all greenhouse gas emissions coming directly from the energy sector, transition away from fossil fuels to lower carbon business models is the most effective way the world can achieve its goals of slowing global warming”.

Globalscope is a close-knit network of independent corporate finance advisory firms, with over three decades experience. In 2022 the network closed 266 transactions with a total transaction value of over US$20.8 billion. Among Globalscope’s currently active deals, approximately 1 in 5 currently fall under the Energy Transition sector category.

In October 2022, AWR Lloyd had the great honor of hosting the Globalscope Fall Conference in Bangkok, with a special focus on how the global advisory community can catalyze the transformation of Southeast Asia’s economies to greater sustainability. The event highlighted the importance of distinguishing Energy Transition as a focus sector within Globalscope.
