Nick is Global Co-CEO and founder, starting up Lightsource Renewable Energy in 2010. The company began with just six team members and rapidly grew to become one of Europe’s leading solar developers and operators in just five years.

In 2017, Nick spearheaded Lightsource’s partnership with global energy company bp, resulting in a 50:50 joint venture and the company rebranding to Lightsource bp. In 2023, Lightsource bp and bp reached an agreement for bp to acquire the 50.03% interest it does not already own in Lightsource bp.

Nick’s dynamic leadership and vision continues to drive the company’s remarkable growth and international reach, growing from 5 to 19 regions since the bp partnership was inked, and now surpassing 1,200 team members around the world.

To date, Lightsource bp has deployed several GW of utility-scale solar projects globally and is executing a significant international project development pipeline as part of its industry-leading ambition to develop 25GW of solar by 2025. With headquarters in London, Lightsource bp is now active across EMEA, The Americas and APAC.

Nick previously sat at Board and Senior Director level in several leading retail financial service companies. Throughout his career, Nick has always been recognised for his entrepreneurial skill and success in pairing retail financial products with low-risk, predictable investments.
