The Birch Team

Decades of experience in site selection, finance, renewable energy & connectivity.

The Birch team brings over 200 years of experience in finance, renewable energy and connectivity. We wrote the first wholesale renewable energy contracts for data centers. We helped build the dark fiber network on which the world’s data travels. We structured the first weather insurance contracts to smooth the cost of renewable intermittency. We developed the cheapest renewables in the world at the time. And then did it again. And again.

Our industry experience enables us to design solutions for a broad range of customers.
