Energy industry professionals offered places on Energy Council

The Greater Lincolnshire LEP is looking for energy industry professionals to join its Energy Council.

The Council is a board of the LEP, and supports work to ensure that the Greater Lincolnshire energy system is able to smoothly transition to a renewable future. It Energy Council is commissioning a Local Area Energy Plan (LAEP) to support the food sector and to support the growth of a low-carbon cluster.

To help in that work it’s looking for passionate, dynamic and motivated experts in any aspect of energy production, delivery and usage, who will act as ambassadors for the industry, take the lead on strategy for the sector and give focus to the delivery of the Local Area Energy Plan.

The LEP is particularly keen to strengthen the voice of the private sector, small and medium-sized businesses, and welcome applications from female candidates and candidates from diverse backgrounds. looking for applicants with some or all of the following:

  • Infrastructure and utility insights
  • Experience of energy applications across multiple sectors
  • Understanding of community energy, off-grid and hybrid solutions
  • Understanding of whole systems and circular economy
  • Ability to work with a wide range of stakeholders
  • A leader with a demonstrable track record at turning vision into reality

Duncan Botting, Chair of the Energy Council, said: “My time as LEP Energy Council Chair has been challenging, educational and enjoyable. Greater Lincolnshire has some of the greatest energy assets in the country and at the other extreme some of the poorest infrastructure to support it. Sectors such as defence, agriculture, horticulture, food production,  logistics, hi-tech, tourism, healthcare, industry, offshore wind, the largest port by tonnage into the UK, the largest industrial de-carbonisation cluster (Humber) in the UK – these all combine to make this one of the most exciting and challenging regions in the country. This is combined with a great team and the council members all very supportive.”
