Congratulations to OYA Renewables on the hiring of Rob Roberti as Executive Vice President, Project Finance! Rob will be responsible for all aspects of financing for the growing 9 GW pipeline of projects.

He was also responsible for the successful sale of a 49% interest in the operating assets and all related restructurings to achieve tax efficiencies.
Previously he spent nine years at Capstone Infrastructure Corporation, where he oversaw the company’s gas co-generation, wind, hydro, biomass, and solar power businesses across Canada.

OYA Renewables is a well established full-service renewable energy developer and independent power producer. Renewable energy project developers and independent power producers like OYA Renewables have a key role to play in the energy transition, and financing renewable energy projects remains a challenging but exciting aspect of this fast-growing and rapidly evolving market. This is an exciting time for OYA and StoneWood Group was thrilled to play a supporting role in the hiring of Rob.
