CARLOS ST. JAMES
Board Member
Director of Strategic Development, Americas
Wood.

Carlos is currently Director of Strategic Development – Clean Energy at Wood, responsible for developing renewable energy business across the Americas. Wood is a global engineering services group headquartered in Scotland, with over 60,000 employees operating across 62 countries.

His energy sector experience began in banking, structuring nuclear power plant project financings in the U.S. His entry into renewable energy took place in the 2000s, playing a key role in the establishment and development of Latin America’s sector: first as founder and President of the Argentine Renewable Energies Chamber, then as founding member of the Latin American and Caribbean Council on Renewable Energy (LAC-CORE) in Washington, DC; he was elected that organization’s first President and remains on its board. His most recent leadership role was in helping establish Wood’s offshore wind practice for the U.S. market.

Carlos’ interest at TREIA is two-fold: working to expand membership into larger multinationals to help cement the organization’s leadership position, and assisting in the ongoing fusion of the Mexican and Texas power sectors into a single larger market.

He holds a master’s degree in international relations from the Fletcher School at Tufts University and completed his undergraduate work in international economics at DePaul University.
