She is involved in all phases of the investment process: sourcing, evaluating, selecting, and supporting novel energy startups from early diligence to exit.

Anandhi's background is in renewable energy. She started her career in SunEdison's rotational leadership program, working across business units – from new product development integrating energy storage with solar for commercial clients in North America to evaluating M&A opportunities for the IPO of TerraForm Global. She went on to manage a 150 MW portfolio of utility-scale solar and wind plants in India, responsible for $28M+ in annual turnover.
