These annual Young Professionals Green Energy Awards organised by Scottish Renewables celebrate the next generation of leaders in renewable energy – one of Scotland’s proudest environmental and economic success stories; and recognise those who have surpassed expectations, are pioneering new ideas and have the drive and ambition to change the renewable energy industry for the better.

Two of our talented technical advisor team were finalists this year – Niamh Hurley who was nominated in the Project Development Award and Rob Spice who was up for the Engineer Award. The calibre was incredibly high this year and unfortunately Niamh and Rob did not take home an award this year. Many congratulations to all the winners on the night – a full list is available here.

A great night was had by all the team who enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with clients, co-professionals, colleagues and friends and celebrate the incredible young talent within the Scottish renewable energy industry. Many thanks to Scottish Renewables for organising such a well-run and enjoyable evening.

ITPEnergised team attend the Young Professionals Green Energy Awards

Niamh (pictured second on LHS) joined ITPEnergised in 2021 as a Graduate EIA Consultant in the Environmental Planning Team and was recently promoted to the position of Senior Consultant within that team. Her nomination in the Project Development Category is testament to her work on a range of different Environmental Impact Assessments projects including Dunfermline North Solar, Culachy Windfarm and the Hagshaw Energy Cluster Western Expansion.

ITPEnergised’s Head of EIA, Gavin Spowage comments, “As Niamh’s manager for the past 18 months, I have been constantly impressed by the high standard of her work. She always has our clients’ best interests at heart and is passionate in working with them to achieve their net zero aspirations. Clients regularly go out of their way to let me know what a great job Niamh is doing for them and her record in securing positive outcomes for them speaks volumes for her talent. She has come a very long way in a short space of time and I’m proud to have her as part of the team.”

Rob joined ITPEnergised in 2018 and was recently promoted to Head of Cable Engineering which is an important growth area for the company. Rob’s nomination in the Engineer Category recognises his great work on a number of recent projects including supporting the Front End Engineering Design of the export cable rating system on Blue Gem Wind’s project Erebus, and his role as Project Manager and engineer on various Irish offshore wind developments.

Brian Branney, Head of Technology says “I’m really pleased to see Rob shortlisted for the Engineer Award. Rob has impressed me hugely with his innovative thinking and grasp of the complexities that developers are facing with delivering offshore wind generation to the Grid. He has been instrumental in the development of a suite of tools that model export cable performance over time, delivering real value and cable asset optimisation during early stage design. Congratulations to Rob and indeed all the nominees contributing to our net zero ambitions.”
