- 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.”
