Andy Newland

Manager – Renewable Energy (UK) +44 (0)7545 070776

My focus is on both the construction and operational aspect of renewable energy assets.  I work closely with a number of the UK’s largest operations & maintenance contractors, EPC contractors, asset managers, investment funds, as well as supporting a number of renewable energy-focussed technical advisors.

As of the end of 2021, the UK had over 3GW of solar progressing through the planning system. The successful build and operation of these assets is critical to support the UK in meeting its 100% renewable electricity by 2030 target. I am motivated daily by the challenge of sourcing experienced professionals in this rapidly growing, skill short area and bringing in skills from other industries such as conventional power and industrial sectors into the renewable energy space.

My background has largely been in retail sales and business management, which gave me a solid understanding of how quality customer service, people skills and communication are an essential cornerstone in all businesses. My experiences enable me to cultivate and develop long-lasting relationships with my clients. Not only do I deliver a quality end-to-end recruitment process, but I also work alongside them as a trusted advisor, providing them with valuable advice and market insight to help them achieve their business goals.

As the UK renewable energy industry continues to grow, I will continue to drive the growth of Climate17’s construction and operations team. By supporting the ongoing demand for skilled professionals in the market, we can do our part to help end the UK’s reliance on fossil fuels and move our ever-growing energy usage towards a much cleaner, greener and more sustainable future.
