Tom Dinwoodie invests in, joins APL Board

Renewable energy pioneer Tom Dinwoodie leads investment round and joins APL Board of Directors.

We are thrilled to announce that Tom Dinwoodie, a Bay Area legend in renewable energy, has just joined the APL team, becoming the latest addition to our board of directors.

Twenty-five years ago and just one block from the APL headquarters in Berkeley, CA, Tom Dinwoodie founded PowerLight Corporation. He grew PowerLight from a start up to a $250+ million dollar powerhouse that later merged with solar giant SunPower, where he went on to serve as the CTO of SunPower Systems Business. “All Power Labs has an exciting technology with an extraordinary potential to make a meaningful impact on energy access and climate change. I’m looking forward to helping them bring it to scale,” said Dinwoodie.

Dinwoodie serves on the boards of Etrion Corporation and the Rocky Mountain Institute, as well as the Sierra Club’s Climate Cabinet and Scientific Advisory Panel. He holds numerous patents on PV and related products. He has a B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Cornell University, an M.S. from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, and an M.A. in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley.
