The Renewables Consulting Group has appointed Julie Drew-Murphy as Senior Associate, bringing offshore wind development experience as well as recent expertise in pumped hydro energy storage infrastructure planning.
In her new role, Drew-Murphy will advise developers and other corporations on matters relating to offshore wind, marine and energy storage development and compliance.
Gareth Lewis, Head of Utilities and Developer Practice at RCG, said: “Offshore wind consent compliance and complimentary energy storage are two key strategic areas where we see demand increasing both in Europe, and the USA.”
With over 12 years’ experience in offshore wind farm development, Drew-Murphy was most recently Offshore EIA Manager for Forewind where she managed the 2.4GW Offshore EIA for Dogger Bank Teesside. She has also held positions with RWE delivering the consent compliance for the Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm and EDF delivering consent for the Teesside Offshore Wind Farm.
She is currently leading RCG’s work in the management of a Development Consent Order for the Snowdonia pumped Hydro scheme for Quarry Battery.
