Founder, Chairman, International Sustainable Energy Organisation
Biography
Clifton has over 15 years of both academic and industrial experience in renewable energy technology development and their application, energy management, electrical project management, grid development management and power systems analysis in Europe, North America and Australia. In 2018 he founded the International Sustainable Energy Organisation (ISEO) along with four close friends in an attempt to assist with the expansion of electricity access to rural Africa via a bottom-up strategy of building and fostering relations with local stakeholders within each community. His view is that decentralisation and hybridisation of the electrical system is mandatory for boosting electricity penetration across sub-Saharan Africa at the rate that is necessary and vital for alignment with economic growth projections. In his capacity as power systems specialist and grid development manager Clifton was a key participant in the development of the world’s largest offshore wind farm (Hornsea) while working at Ørsted. In addition, he was a specialist advisor to the Carbon Trust, United Kingdom on both technical and practical projections of the evolution of offshore wind farms electrical design so that the UK government could be appropriately briefed and therefore understands what policies are necessary to optimally facilitate their carbon emissions reduction ambition. Clifton is also project coordinator for the Association of Free Research and Internationl Cooperation (AFRIC). In this capacity he functions as a strategist and geopolitical analyst where he speaks on issues of Pan-Africanism, sovereignty and is a critique of western exceptionalism that perpetuates military, political and economic interventionism. He argues that sovereignty of state is sacrosanct and that international institutions like the IMF, World Bank and the UN oftentimes act to ultimately destabilize wherever they get involved and thus representing part of the problem.
