Wind Resource and Energy Yield Engineer

They are currently seeking a Wind Resource and Energy Yield Engineer to help to deliver on an extensive portfolio of wind projects and further develop their services within the sector.

The primary focus of the role will be to support developers in resource and yield assessment and layout optimisation to support site selection, bids for leasing and for contracts for difference. You will also support wind farm operators in conducting operational assessments of existing assets to reconcile difference between actual and forecast performance, update predictions and identify performance issues.

Furthermore, as a member of our Energy Technology department you will understand our constituent teams' wider service offering and have the opportunity to support some of our other key clients in conducting wind turbine modelling, technical assessments and assessing project level risks for an offshore wind farm across various project stages.
