Andrew Aldridge

Partner – Edinburgh, UK

Andrew's extensive career spans two decades in private equity, project financing, and corporate development, marking him as a seasoned senior partner at NovAzure. With a focus on emerging markets, he has overseen global portfolios, specializing in M&A, private power projects, and energy utility privatisations. His role extends beyond traditional investments as he provides strategic advisory and financial structuring support for early-stage cleantech ventures, driving forward the transition to renewable solutions. Andrew's commitment to sustainability is not confined to the professional realm but extends into his personal life, where he advocates for green energy and embraces sustainable lifestyle choices. His dedication was further reinforced during his time living and working in China, inspiring him to prioritise renewables, energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas emission capture.
