About the speaker:

Issam Dairanieh is the Global director of BP Ventures. Issam heads-up the team that makes strategic investments in emerging energy technologies of interest to BP.

The Ventures team started investing in renewable power generation, energy efficiency, energy storage, Biofuels and Carbon Management. But since 2011, the team has expanded its scope beyond Alternative Energy to cover both downstream and upstream oil and gas emerging technologies. Since its establishment in 2007, BP Ventures made over 30 direct and indirect investments.

In addition to team leadership, deal origination and execution, Issam participates in portfolio management and currently serves on the board of eight companies, either as a director or an observer.

Prior to moving to Alternative Energy in 2006, Issam spent 8 years with the New Business Development Division at BP Chemicals where he conducted product and application development as well as technical service and commercial development. Prior to that , Issam was a professor of Chemical Engineering.

Access to Energy (and clean water) by the bottom of the pyramid is a near and dear issue to Issam’s heart; an issue that he hopes to exploit his professional experience to bring solutions to those of need.

Issam has B.S. degrees in Chemistry as well as Chemical Engineering and completed his MS and Ph.D. at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Issam has completed executive training at Imperial College, UC Berkeley and Harvard.
