Before setting up Syzygy in 2010, John worked in commercial property fund management for 15 years with Ashtenne Holdings PLC and at Spitfire Estates. In this period he set up, invested and managed investment from AXA REIM, Aviva, HBoS, Lasalle and BlackRock. He set up Syzygy because he felt there was a huge opportunity within the commercial real estate sector for a specialist consultancy that could successfully bridge the two different worlds of renewable energy and commercial real estate, providing pragmatic and practical advice, delivering well thought out and relevant renewable energy solutions to property owners and occupiers. He is the Chairman of the Solar Group at the Renewable Energy Association (REA) and sits on main Policy board at REA.
Founded in 2010, Syzygy has grown to become one of the leading specialist low carbon technology consultancies in the UK and Europe. Most of their work is within the Commercial Real Estate sector where they help developers, investors and occupiers deliver their net zero ambitions though the deployment of ‘embedded’ green technologies. They focus on 3 technology areas: renewable energy, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
