Saoradh is a Gaelic (Scottish) word for the act of freeing and pronounced seur-ug.  Combining Saoradh + Energy = free energy of the system, which is a play on the concept of chemical free energy that results from a reaction (also known as Gibbs free energy).
Team

We are a hands-on team that enjoys getting into the middle of the fray to create value for our investment funds and client projects. We actively build energy companies and develop projects by putting capital and our minds to work. Our team works closely with other investment groups to stay abreast of the energy industry, review potential investment opportunities and make co-investments.
