Peter Drown

Director of Research & Development of FDE Hydro

Peter has dedicated his career to enhancing the value of clean energy projects to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy. Peter’s work bridges the gap between technology development and financial requirements, applying a diverse set of skills that both engineers and investors can understand. His skillset has brought a particular value to Serial #1 Projects, including the successful development and launch of the first grid-connected offshore wind turbine in the United States located off the coast of Maine in 2013.

​Following the deployment Peter was retained by the U.S. Department of Energy to develop investment strategy for new hydropower technology projects.  His work led to record budget requests and innovative funding opportunities.  Since that time Peter has joined the private sector where he assists clean energy firms with project development strategy, technology commercialization, and environmental compliance. He founded Cleantech Analytics in 2014.  Peter holds an MBA in Finance and Bachelor’s of Science in Economics from the University of Maine in Orono.
