Statkraft Project Manager Finalist for Prestigious Award
A member of the Statkraft development team has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Scottish Renewables Young Professionals Green Energy Awards 2020.
The annual industry award is dedicated to individuals starting their career in the renewable energy sector, recognising those who have achieved beyond all expectations, pioneering new ideas with the drive and ambition to change the industry for the better.
John Wallace, Project Manager at Statkraft was selected from over 100 nominations as a finalist in the Project Development category, in what the organisers describe as a “huge achievement”.
John said: “It’s a real honour to be a finalist for this industry award, and that my work is judged by others to have merit. I’m passionate about sustainable living and my work very much chimes with that.”
John’s successes have included playing a role in a six-fold increase in the company’s UK onshore wind pipeline in just two years; improving processes and bringing efficiencies; as well as being a dedicated mentor for summer interns. John has also recently started a Masters in Renewable Energy through distance learning at Loughborough University.
Richard Mardon, Head of UK Wind & Solar at Statkraft: “John’s admirable work ethic, enthusiasm and tenacity in early stage development work makes him a deserving finalist. He brings great credit to himself and the company.”
Scottish Renewables have moved the Young Professionals Green Energy Awards online this year, and
the award winner will be announced on Friday 19 June.
