Gianni Spinelli

With over 16 years in the UK energy industry, Gianni began his career working with some of the largest UK corporates to manage their gas and electricity portfolios. Following this he moved into the Renewables sector and spent a decade structuring PPAs and leading sales teams in the UK wholesale power market. Gianni now heads up Drax’s Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) Origination team where he is responsible for sourcing CDR offtake agreements and promoting Drax and BECCS in the wider Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM). Last year, Gianni concluded one of the largest CDR deals to date with a proposed 2 million tonne sale to Respira.
