Interview with Wil VanLoh, Founder and CEO of Quantum Energy Partners
Published 21 March 2023
Wil VanLoh, Founder & CEO of Quantum Energy Partners, joins the Investor Podcast series to talk about where he sees the most attractive risk-adjusted returns within the energy sector, and why LPs should consider the energy sector a long-term investment opportunity following years of under-investment as it begins to demonstrate a sustained period of improved performance. Wil tackles a number of the most pressing topics in the industry, ranging from how cheap, clean and reliable US natural gas & LNG may be the most powerful tool in the world for rapid decarbonization, to the role that different forms of energy are going to play in the energy transition. He also addresses how achieving Net Zero emissions is going to be a multi-decade regulatory, technology and economic challenge which will require decarbonization of the entire energy system.
Wil founded Quantum in 1998 and serves as CEO of the Firm and as Chairman of QEP’s Investment Committee, Chairman of Quantum’s Operating Committee and is a member of QCS’s investment committee. Prior to founding Quantum, Wil founded Windrock Capital, an energy investment banking firm specializing in raising private equity for and providing merger, acquisition, and divestiture advice to private energy companies.
