North & South America
AWR Lloyd established a North American presence in Austin, Texas during 2011 in order to better serve our Asian clients as they ventured into the North American market and help North American companies with raising capital in Asia as well as investing in Asia. The primary focus of our principals in North America was in renewables, gas and power and upstream oil and gas. These principals have since become senior consultants to AWR Lloyd with their own local advisory firm.
AWR Lloyd have advised Japanese, Korean and Chinese clients on renewable sector opportunities in the Americas. Since 2008, we have advised Diamond Generating Corporation and Green Power Investment Corp, both associated with Mitsubishi Corporation, on a number of wind projects in Canada, the US and Mexico. We have advised Goldwind on a number of potential wind opportunities and, during 2011, advised another Chinese wind turbine manufacturer on the acquisition of a 67MW project in California. We have advised a large Korean wind turbine manufacturer on their market entry strategy for North America. For other Korean wind turbine manufacturers and investment groups we have provided market, commercial and financial advisory services on wind and solar projects across the US.
