He admits to being a “frustrated farmer” who dreams of living in the country but in fact he wears a suit to work and bosses a £270m business. CAROLINE CULOT spoke to Jon Duffy, CEO of The AF Group Jon Duffy always wanted to be a farmer. But although he climbed the corporate ladder instead, he's ended up at the very top of a business that looks after 3,500 shareholders who are indeed mostly farmers.“I could have been a farmer,” he muses. “I chose the wrong parents so, I am a frustrated farmer. If you ask me what my perfect day would be in 10-15 years time, I can see myself in the country with some acres around me – not being a 'proper' farmer but a pottering farmer.”It's hard to imagine Jon, 54, who's talking to me while gulping down coffee in his office at … [Read more...] about What drives AF boss Jon Duffy?

By Jennifer A. Dlouhy Bloomberg Sat., Dec. 15, 2018 Three companies bid a record-shattering $405.1 (U.S.) million to nab U.S. rights to build offshore wind farms near Massachusetts on Friday, a testament to the surging appeal of renewable power and investors’ confidence in state demand for it. Equinor Wind US LLC, Mayflower Wind Energy LLC and Vineyard Wind LLC each pledged $135 million to secure individual leases from the U.S. government, drawn by state pledges to buy offshore wind power. Mayflower is a joint venture of EDP Renewables and Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s Shell New Energies US LLC. The auction raked in more than nine times the previous high-water mark: a 2016 sale of an offshore wind lease near New York to Equinor ASA for $42.47 million. Each of the winning bids also approached the highest sum paid for oil drilling rights in the Gulf of Mexico since the start of area-wide leasing: $157 million that Equinor spent nabbing a single 5,760-acre tract … [Read more...] about Martha’s Vineyard wind-farm sites spur $405 million bids
By Associated Press | PUBLISHED: December 14, 2018 at 4:57 pm | UPDATED: December 14, 2018 at 5:06 pm By STEVE LeBLANC BOSTON (AP) — A lease auction of about 390,000 acres off the coast of Massachusetts for the development of offshore wind energy has drawn a record $405 million in winning bids. If fully developed, the three parcels could generate about 4.1 gigawatts of energy — enough to power nearly 1.5 million homes. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Friday the auction was the nation’s eighth competitive lease sale for the development of offshore wind. He said it smashed the previous highest grossing offshore wind lease sale record of $42 million for an area off New York in 2016. The provisional winners of the auction were Equinor Wind US, Mayflower Wind Energy and Vineyard Wind. They bid $135 million each for three similarly sized parcels of approximately 130,000 acres. The areas are located about 20 miles from Martha’s Vineyard and 44 miles from Block … [Read more...] about Auction of offshore wind parcels draws record $405M in bids
