Dan is an investment manager by career and a mathematician by training.
In the last 15 years he represented institutional investors including Oil Terminal Constanta, Romania, the largest maritime energy storage operator in the Black Sea.
After researching ways to provide 100% renewable energy to off-grid islands, in 2017 he, along with Mark Pillsworth, founded Energy Storage Rights, a green start-up based in Canberra, Australia.
Together with Australian National University and University of Innsbruck Austria they are developing a floating solar+energy storage solution that plans to benefit the Seasteading Institute projects and help finance seasteads by converting floating breakwaters that protect the floating islands into a 24hours/day renewable energy generators. Surplus energy could then be sold to nearby Island Nations where electricity is currently prohibitively expensive.
