A leadership team with decades of experience scaling profitable energy and power infrastructure platforms in new industries

Patrick Sullivan


Patrick is co-founder and CEO of EV Realty.  He firmly believes we cannot decarbonize our planet on the backs of the power sector alone. Before turning his focus to transportation, Patrick spent the last 15 years opening renewable energy markets, scaling development platforms, financing first-of-a-kind projects and putting a lot of steel in the ground – 4 GW of wind, solar and batteries so far.  In between raising two strong-willed girls and binging energy podcasts, Patrick enjoys any activity that maximizes aerobic suffering and preferably involves going uphill.
