Specialists

Our core team work together to bring our clean energy solutions to the worldwide community using the latest research and technology.

Jim Barry

Senior Adviser
Jim Barry joined the Crossflow Energy team as from January 2017 bringing substantial financial and business experience from the banking and renewable energy sectors. Most recently he was with Vestas, the leading Danish based Wind Turbine manufacturer who he joined in 2010 to develop training to ensure a thorough understanding within Vestas of Project Financing structures and techniques, at the time supporting Vestas to preposition itself from a sales focussed to one supporting developers to secure finance and providing long term O&M support for projects. Prior to Vestas Jim worked for over 20 years in the Banking Sector with Barclays, Dresdner, HBOS and UniCredit where he ran various specialist teams focused on both advisory and debt arranging and underwriting activities in the Project & Export Finance area. His financing experience goes across a wide range of Infrastructure sectors and geographic regions, but in recent years he has focussed increasingly on renewable energy including time spent with Trinergy, a leading developer and operator of wind farms in Italy and Germany, as Head of Capital Management, helping to develop and secure a €1bn+ refinancing structure for a portfolio of Italian and German wind assets.

Professor Cross recently retired as the LCRI Professor of Renewable Energy in the College of Engineering at Swansea University. With over 40 years of experience in the field of computational modelling, analysis and optimisation of engineering processes and systems, he pioneered the concept of simulation-based design using advanced numerical methods on high-performance parallel computers. He has worked with Crossflow Energy since its earliest days on conceptual design and analysis of its turbine systems and for much of this time has provided essential technology support to the Board. Mark has wide industrial and senior management experience. He was a Head of School, Director of Research and then Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of Greenwich over a 20 year period, where he spun out a number of high technology start-up companies from his research team, including one the US which successfully sold to a multi-national corporation in 2012.

Rob Ellis

Development Director
With over 25 years experience in renewables Rob has led engineering teams in innovative product design across Europe and U.S. As a Composite Consultant, he became extensively involved in design, construction and inspection of both racing yachts and wind and water turbine blades. Project siting, anemometry mast design and installation, power performance evaluation of commercial wind farms, wind focus, keen sailor, boat builder are all key attributes that make Rob the multi-disciplined dynamic lead required to drive the engineering design to a successful completion.
