From 2008, before joining RCG, Mr Stevens was head of Resource Assessment at SSE Renewables where he was responsible for the layout design and energy yield modelling of 3GW of wind projects both on- and offshore. As well as leading the technical due diligence for project acquisitions he also created the Asset Performance Analysis group to track and improve operational wind farm performance and improve yield modelling accuracy. He was an integral to the creation of the Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator and in 2012 cofounded the EWEA-affiliated power curve working group. Before joining SSE Renewables, he worked as a wind analyst at RWE Innogy.
Mr Stevens has extensive experience working with development teams to minimise the cost of energy of renewables projects through fully integrated project optimisation. He has delivered analysis support for all stages of the project lifecycle across wind, wave and tidal energy systems from Ireland to China. Mr Stevens earned his BSc (Hons) in Environmental Science from The University of East Anglia.
I am delighted to be joining such a dynamic, flexible team. RCG has a huge breadth of experience and occupies a niche which I’ve long felt needed filling within the consultancy
sphere. I look forward to developing new business for the team and applying my technical insight on innovative projects across the globe.
