Emily Sanders Cohen talks with Nico Johnson about her 20-plus years of renewable project development, including more than 15 gigawatts of operational wind & solar projects. 

Emily has spent the past three years at Primergy Solar as Chief Development Officer, responsible for project development, power marketing and origination activities associated with the company’s growing portfolio of North American utility-scale and distributed solar and storage assets. 

Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, a specialist investor in lower carbon and renewable energy infrastructure, launched Primergy in 2020 to capitalize on the increasingly important role of solar-plus-battery storage solutions in accelerating the energy transition.

In today’s podcast, Emily discusses Primergy’s battery storage projects (Including Gemini, the largest Solar + Storage project in the US) and how the company’s work is helping us transition to a cleaner, decarbonized electric grid. 

Before Primergy, Emily oversaw renewable activities at ENGIE North America Inc. and led that team to the number one utility-scale Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) position. She has significant experience, and this insightful conversation stems from more than two decades of earning her stripes in roles that have traditionally been held by her male peers.
