Our company was formed in the UK by Justin Passfield and Craig Copeland in 2015 with a goal of matching renewable developers with finance. Utilising the founders experience in corporate finance, law, and renewable development, Canigou quickly began developing projects from greenfield status and began bringing them to ready to build.
