Director, Power Markets Analysis
Prior to joining Renewable Power Capital, Lucia Fuentes led the Gas, Power, and Emissions trading analytics team for CEPSA Trading in Madrid. While at CEPSA she built their internal capabilities to monitor markets and regulation, optimize assets, price deals and assess various cross-country and cross-commodity exposures.
Before CEPSA, Lucia worked at EDF Trading and BP for over 12 years in Paris and London, evolving in various front-office positions in Pan-European power Trading benches, where she dealt with proprietary trading positions as well as the day-to-day optimization of large and diversified portfolios of flexible and intermittent assets.
