He has advised in more than a dozen wind farm developments since, including the Snowtown Wind Farm project, and has also advised geothermal plant developers on generation, transmission and distribution requirements.

Also working in the health sector, Jeremy provided advice on mergers, acquisitions and financing in the formation of Adelaide Community Healthcare Alliance Inc. and subsequent transactions relating to its hospital operations, including the co-located Flinders Private Hospital.
