RCG hires offshore wind specialist

The Renewables Consulting Group (RCG), a sector specialist advisory firm, has announced the appointment of wind farm development and due diligence specialist Chris Houston (pictured) to the company's growing Glasgow office.

RCG said it is expanding the team in response to the launch of the new Scottish seabed leasing round ScotWind earlier this year.

Houston has more than a decade of experience in the renewables sector and provides clients with complex technical due diligence to support wind farm developments, with a focus on acquisition and bank finance transactions.

RCG added that he has experience in the full development, construction and operational phases of renewable energy projects and in particular offshore wind.

RCG’s Europe, Middle East and Africa managing director Andrew Cole said it was “delighted” Chris was joining the company.

Houston added: “It is an exciting time to be joining the respected team at RCG. I am looking forward to helping grow the firm’s development and due diligence services.

“We are exceptionally well-placed to assist existing and new clients with a blend of market-leading expertise and practical support.”
