Timezone: America/Chicago

Randy Sowell is the President of Lionshare Advisory Services which provides development consultation for utility grade wind and solar energy projects. Its suite of services include site prospecting and evaluation, land owner and community relations, local tax agreements, surface rights agreements, environmental assessment oversight and pre-construction micro-siting and design refinement. Mr. Sowell has participated in the construction of over 900 megawatts of wind energy facilities since 2001. He enforces a minimal environmental impact policy during construction that he recommended as a standard to the industry at the American Wind Energy Association annual meeting in 2002.

Mr. Sowell is a representative of a special outreach effort of the Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association called the Rural Alliance for Renewable Energy. For over a decade he has provided advisory services to the West Texas County Judges and Commissioners Association. More recently he has been admitted as a faculty member of the University of Texas Continuing Legal Education Renewable Energy Institute for his pioneering work in the impact of mineral issues on solar energy development and negotiated surface rights agreements that are considered industry standard documents. His experience working for an international investment bank gives him early insight into finance criteria. His passion for renewable energy’s future guides his interest in ongoing public policy. Acting as a communication bridge, Mr. Sowell builds the broadest possible alliances between project developers and urban and rural stakeholders in the renewable energy arena.
