Giulio Belizia, InfraRed Capital Partners
Snell Bridge understand the complexities of renewable energy projects. Their experience and ability are complemented by a calm and measured approach.
Bonnie Priest, Carbon Free Developments
Snell Bridge ran a process to find project investors in support of our bid into National Grid’s Enhanced Frequency Response auction. Their expert advice and strong investor contacts ensured that the process ran smoothly and culminated in a successful outcome.
Nick Heyward, Head of Energy Storage, Origami Energy
Snell Bridge are first class, with experience in all aspects of funding renewable energy projects; dedicated, personable, available and most of all smart. An essential solution to taking projects to the next stage, whatever that might be.
Steven Pottinger, Baillie Wind Farm
We set out to secure our debt using both Capacity Market income and merchant generating income. The former had not previously been accepted by a bank and the latter is extremely challenging. Snell Bridge assisted us (and our bank) in the fundraising process with a fine attention to detail and, perhaps most importantly, to the human aspects of the process. As such, Snell Bridge was essential to the success of the project.
Jeremy Taylor, CEO, Green Frog Power
From start to finish, Snell Bridge demonstrated the necessary financial, commercial and negotiating skills to ensure a successful outcome for the shareholders.
Joy Bainville, Bregal Capital
Snell Bridge is an outstanding adviser. Simon Robinson provided incisive advice, brilliant financial modelling, and was incredibly efficient and quick. Additionally, he is unflappable, calm and very sensible. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him.
Charles Macdonald, Rossie House Investment Management

Snell Bridge was founded in 2012 by Simon Robinson.

After studying physics at Balliol College, Oxford, Simon started his career in the energy and mining teams at NM Rothschild in London before moving to Bridgewell, a mid-market investment bank, in 2002. He spent six years at Bridgewell working in M&A, corporate finance and corporate broking across a wide range of sectors for both public and private companies in the UK and overseas.

In 2008 he moved to Quayle Munro to specialise in renewable energy and subsequently moved to Edinburgh, where he is now based.
