The international renewable energy consultancy, Natural Power, which has based its US operations out of its Saratoga Springs office, is now expanding to the west coast to meet demand for its services locally.
Holly Hughes, who has recently joined the senior management team, will head up this new venture. With more than a decade of experience in the North American renewable energy sector she has worked in the areas of engineering, due diligence and turbine technology. Besides her hands-on experience, she also has an extensive portfolio of expert articles and presentations to her name.
Holly said: “Natural Power was established in North America several years ago. The company is 20 years old, and globally employs more than 320 renewable energy experts across three continents. With operational involvement in over 150 projects in onshore wind, offshore wind, solar, renewable heat and hydro power, Natural Power is unique in its direct experience among other consultancies in the sector.”
Joining Holly in Seattle is Senior Project Engineer, Taurin Spalding and Renewables Analyst Mackenzie Tocco. With 12 years of experience in energy, Taurin’s primary areas of expertise are in energy yield assessments (>2 GW assessed), conducting wake and wind flow model research, and project due diligence and management. Mackenzie will conduct pre-and post-construction analysis of renewable energy projects.
Jim Adams, Natural Power’s President North American Operations added: “Natural Power’s US team brings over 60 years of combined experience in the renewable energy industry and we’re excited to be taking our efforts west. We are continuing to expand across the US and having teams on both coasts will allow us to better serve our clients. We look forward to supporting Holly as she continues to build the team in Seattle.”
