I started my career in recruitment in 2019 and quickly discovered my passion for the industry and transitioned into the dynamic field of renewables where I have never stopped learning. The captivating nature of the renewable energy sector motivated me to explore its intricacies further.

I lead the focus for Renewable Energy and Infrastructure as Market Development Manager across EMEA for NextWave Partners. The team's focus lies in overseeing the entire life cycle of renewable energy projects, spanning from conceptualisation to asset management, specialising in four key technologies: Wind, Solar, and new technologies such as Hydrogen and Energy Storage. We cover various aspects from investment, finance, commercial management to legal and project development up to the pre-project phase and beyond.

My Thoughts on Renewable Energy

Everywhere you turn these days people are talking about the energy transition. It is one of the buzziest buzz words out there. It is an exciting time and a dynamic and fast-paced environment to be in. We're seeing a big change toward renewable energy, and it's not just about new technology it's a global movement. Countries all over, big and small, are getting on board with renewable energy. 

This global push is happening because there's a real urgency to tackle climate change. Several European countries have set ambitious targets for renewable energy deployment, aiming to increase the share of renewables in their energy mix. This change won't happen quickly. It needs strong leadership and careful planning, innovative policies, collaboration with the industry, and working with partners, Indigenous nations, and all levels of government to make sure everyone benefits.
