Incubex and its partners such as the European Energy Exchange are developing financial products to support the renewable energy industry. The group was founded and is chaired by Neil Eckert, AMPH’s executive chairman.

Orsted is now a major player in the offshore wind business having at one time been Denmark’s state-owned oil and gas company.

The Danish group has committed fully to renewable sources of energy and will stop using coal by 2023.
