Rachel joined TNEI in 2005 and has over 10 years’ experience of working in the power and energy sector covering major project design and specification through to infrastructure planning. She has strong design, development, investigation and project management skills with considerable experience in business development, contract management, CDM and managing multi-functional teams with diverse skills and experience.
Rachel’s expertise is in concept studies, strategy, impact on policy and regulations and offshore wind, wave and tidal technologies. She has led a number of offshore wind projects, ranging from concept selection through to detailed compliance studies and this has given Rachel an in-depth understanding of the technology requirements for offshore grid development and allowed her to develop strong relationships with many of the technology suppliers and major generation developers.
In her role as Managing Director, Rachel is responsible for the strategic direction of TNEI, supporting our existing clients throughout their projects. She is the main point of contact with our strategic partners in various sectors, enabling us to leverage off their experience and knowledge in international and alternative energy markets.
Through strategic partnerships with other consultancies, suppliers and organisations, TNEI is able to offer their specialist skills to a wider market, whether that be specialist power system analysis capability as part of a much larger project working with a large multi-disciplinary consultancy, full suite of EIA studies with other specialist consultants, bespoke software tools working with IT companies, or economic modelling of networks informing government policy working with management consultancies.
Rachel is the main contact for companies looking to discuss strategic partnerships, opportunities and bespoke, unusual or multi-disciplinary projects.
