Independent Scottish renewable energy consultancy Natural Power has bolstered its technical team with three key appointments to support its global growth aspirations.

Leanne Ramage joins as Head of Projects while the role of Senior Technical Manager has been filled by Selena Farris. Both global roles will be based at the company’s office in Stirling.

These two strategic hires will support the company’s Director of Technical, Lauren Wheatley, to maintain the business’ position as a technical authority within the renewables industry.

Wheatley began working in renewable energy in 2008 following completion of her PhD in Physics. In her new role she is responsible for leadership and management of the technical department, which provides energy due diligence work for potential investments in addition to detailed analyses of onshore and offshore wind projects internationally at all stages of their lifecycle.

Ramage joins from DNV-GL, where she most recently headed up the UK and Irish Energy and Development Services, while Farris will be focused on developing key procedures and methods.

Farris has been in the industry for six years working for consultants, developers and utilities – primarily in the North American wind market. She has been part of the Natural Power team for 15 months and has stepped up to this new role.

Established 20 years ago, Natural Power has expanded internationally from its iconic Scottish head office – The Green House – and now employs more than 300 renewable energy experts worldwide.
