His additional expertise includes renewable energy technologies, project finance, power purchase agreements, and ESCO contracting.
John Curtis, Global Head of ERM’s Sustainability and Climate Change Service said: “Kevin really strengthens our presence in the Utilities sector and in other industrial sectors where we develop energy strategies He is a great addition to our team - it is rare to find a hands-on engineer who grew up tuning power plants, but has also run a business and understands finance.
