Evan Williams is responsible for the
structuring of Cambrian’s energy projects.
In doing so, Evan works with landfill owners and energy customers and
their legal counsel to arrive at agreements that reflect a fair sharing of
both responsibilities and benefits.
These agreements must not only meet the financial expectations of the
parties, but must also satisfy the requirements for a successful energy
project development in the areas of regulatory compliance, permitting, tax
law, real property title issues and financing.
Evan received his Bachelor of Arts degree from
UCLA in 1965. He received his
Juris Doctor from UCLA in 1968.
Evan is a principal in the law firm of
Poindexter & Doutré, Inc. He
also is a director of Glass Inc. International.
Tudor Williams is responsible for working with
landfill owners so as to maximize the value of their landfill gas resource.
In this capacity, he reviews the technical aspects of the landfill,
the status of its landfill gas collection system, the potential availability
of tax incentives for an energy project, the proximity to local energy
users, the evaluation of the local energy market, and the selection of an
energy conversion technology that will best suit the conditions at the
project. Tudor also works with
potential energy customers to negotiate pricing and explain the technical
aspects for either direct utilization of landfill gas in their process or
for the purchase of electric power and/or other energy products produced
form landfill gas. In working
with energy customers, Tudor must find value in the end energy use for both
the energy customer and the project.
Tudor is nationally recognized as having broad
expertise in all aspects of landfill gas development.
He has presented a number of papers at landfill gas industry
symposiums through the years on a variety of technical and business topics.
Tudor received his Bachelor of Science from
UCLA in 1967. He received his
Master of Science from UCLA in 1969 and was advanced to Ph. D. candidacy.
Prior to joining Cambrian, Tudor started a
family of companies in the alternate energy area, covering such technologies
as landfill gas conversion, cogeneration and waste heat recovery.
He also worked at System Development Corporation and at Proctor and
Rhys Williams is responsible for assisting in
the location and evaluation of potential energy customers for an energy
project as well as for the preparation of the financial model for each
energy option being evaluated for a project.
Such financial models collectively constitute the decisional tool by
which the key elements of the project are determined, including the
selection and size of an energy conversion technology and the pricing of the
energy to be purchased by an energy customer in a fashion that provides an
equitable sharing of financial benefits available from the project among the
landfill owner, the energy customer and the energy project developer.
The financial models prepared for each project are also
essential in determining whether or to what extent debt financing may be
available to enhance the financial returns for an energy project.
Rhys is adept at working with the variable elements within the
financial models to optimize the sharing of available financial benefits
from a project among the participants.
Rhys received his Bachelor of Business
Administration from the University
of San Diego in 1999 where he graduated with honors from
the School of Business.
Rhys has also been admitted to the M.B.A. program at the
of San Diego.
Prior to joining Cambrian, Rhys received his securities and insurance
licenses and has developed his own financial services business.
