Sara Lynn Pesek joined GenPro in March 2018 with deep experience in renewable energy in both project deployment as well as market trends and research. Her interest in energy policy brought her to GenPro in the company’s first Government Affairs position, and that role has grown to encompass corporate development and finance more broadly. Today she supports both the Sales and Development teams with project finance modeling and business development strategy, as well as providing business analytics for the company as a whole.
Sara spent much of her earlier career in India, working at the intersection of rural development, clean technology, and social enterprise. As India head for Bloomberg New Energy Finance between 2008-2010, she opened their India office and started a new stream of research focused on emerging market and policy trends in the region. Also in India, she worked for a biofuels company and a solar developer, and most recently worked in India, Tanzania, and Myanmar for a research lab at MIT, focused on comparative evaluations of clean tech products used in rural development settings, such as water quality test kits, solar lanterns, and solar pumps.
