RenewableUK has appointed Emma Pinchbeck as its new Executive Director, with responsibility for leading the organisation’s vital policy and communication work.
Pinchbeck will be joining RenewableUK in mid-November from WWF-UK where she is Head of Climate Change and Energy, with previous engagements in consultancies across the energy and financial sectors as well as working for the Sustainable Energy Association.
Emma Pinchbeck said: “Renewable energy is on the cusp of a transformation, from being valued as key to the fight against climate change to also being recognised as the engine room of our economy. I firmly believe that the technologies of the next industrial age must reach their potential– for business, for society, and for our planet. I am excited to join RenewableUK and help drive this transition.”
Pinchbeck’s appointment is part of a restructure within RenewableUK, with current Deputy Chief Executive Maf Smith moving across from policy and communications to lead work on events, membership and programme delivery for the trade association.
RenewableUK is a renewable energy trade association in UK representing onshore wind, offshore wind and wave and tidal energy sectors.
