Co-founder and CEO
AES Solar Power Ltd.
[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
R.F. Hemphill (Bob to those that know him) was a cofounder of the AES Corporation– a highly regarded global electric power generating and distribution company– with Roger Sant and Dennis Bakke back in 1981. Bob served as its EVP. The company grew from a one million dollar six person startup, to its current size– approximately 27,000 employees and owns and operates 38,000 MW of power plants in 21 countries around the globe, is publicly listed on the NYSE, and had approximately $18 billion of revenues in 2013.
Recently, Hemphill was the sole founder and CEO of AES Solar Power Ltd from its inception in March 2008 until the sale of the company in December 2013. AES Solar was a leading developer, owner and operator of utility-scale photovoltaic solar plants connected to the electric power grid. These installations, ranging in size from less than 2 MW to more than 250 MW, consist of large arrays of land-based solar photovoltaic panels that directly convert sunlight to electricity. Under his leadership, the company designed, permitted, financed, built and operated fifty-one solar plants (526 MW and 2.5 billion in assets) in seven countries: Spain, France, Italy, Bulgaria, Greece, India and the US.
He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Yale University and earned an MA from UCLA and an MBA from George Washington University. He served as an airborne infantry officer in the US Army in Vietnam, and in the Special Forces.
Bob is the author of two books: Dust Tea, Dingoes & Dragons: Adventures in Culture, Cuisine & Commerce from a Globe-Trekking Executive (November 2014) and Stories from the Middle Seat: the Four Million Mile Journey to Building a Billion Dollar International Business (January 2016).
