Insight without borders: understanding the business and environment of renewable energy development

I am an expert in renewable energy development and as such I help developers, investors and barristers to understand what has happened in pre-construction renewable energy projects. My advice is around areas such as development processes and risk management, finance risks, environmental due diligence, project development and how a project has arrived at the development stage it is at. This is often in relation to litigation, disputes or arbitration. My advice provides transparency, understanding and answers critical questions.

I also advise businesses at a Board level around environment and sustainability providing services such as diagnostics, strategy, Board advice and Executive Coaching.

I am an experienced professional with over 15 years energy industry project management experience with a demonstrable track record including SSE, RWE, RPS Energy, Charles River Associates, Talisman Energy, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and The Government of Kenya with projects spanning a diverse range of technologies.

Our clients have experienced increased project economics of 20% and reduced project timescales of 15%. We have consented over 20 energy projects across multiple technologies.

Environmental challenges in energy projects are getting ever more complex. There are frequently a range of issues to be addressed:

  • Technical complexity.

  • Regulatory uncertainty.

  • Complex natural eco-system interactions.

  • Explaining and communicating the key issues to a range of decision makers within organisations including CEO’s, Boards of Directors, funders and committees.

  • Balancing the input of a diverse range of scientists, engineers, stakeholders and regulators.

  • Complying with rigorous environmental legislation.

  • Managing reputation.

  • Lack of reliable, dependable resource.

All the while, being expected to deliver these complex projects on time, within budget and to meet business plan targets and commercial drivers. It is far from easy.

We can work with you to resolve these challenging issues.
