I am the lead partner of LCP’s Energy Analytics department. I help my clients analyse the risk and opportunities associated with power markets through my experience of developing modelling solutions for government, regulators and industry participants. 

I designed and developed the modelling used by the Department of Energy and Climate Change to analyse the effects of the Electricity Market Reforms (EMR) on the GB power market and continue to work with a range of stake holders to analyse, plan and implement the changes required for the transitions to the new market arrangements. 

I also head up LCP’s technology and innovation including the LCP Entrepreneur programme, which gives our people the opportunity to develop new business ideas beyond our existing services. 

LCP are able to use technical knowledge to appropriately communicate relevant information to aid decision making.
