Placing the hard-to-find technical specialists

Overcoming the intermittency of renewable energy production is the final hurdle to overcome in driving humanity’s transition to a carbon neutral energy system.

The need for effective storage solutions is becoming ever more critical, as the amount of renewables on the grid continues to grow at pace .

We have worked with businesses developing innovative solutions to the age-old problem of how to store electricity. These have ranged from straight forward battery solutions, to compressed air, to molten salts to hydrogen.

On a project level, there is huge crossover between storage projects and other types of renewable energy projects. This can make the transfer of skills simple. Other areas require key specialists that require in-depth search techniques to identify pools of transferable skills talent.

In both instances, we are perfectly positioned to add value to our clients.

Case study

Highly specialised skill set

Novel technology

Highly specialised role

One of our earliest storage projects was delivered as part of a £500m technology incubator fund. The party had taken a position in a novel, utility-scale, electro-chemical energy storage technology.

Development of the technology to commercialisation required a highly specialised chemical Engineering Scientist with industry experience. We scoured several aligned industry sectors globally to identify the specialists to lead the delivery of the R&D programme.

We continue to be heavily involved in several storage technologies and we will grow our own business in line with the expected rapid growth in this essential technology space.
