It’s highly appropriate that my new appointment coincides with the important climate change talks in Copenhagen, as urgent progress on the UK’s renewable energy targets is essential if the UK is to retain a leadership position in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, said Matt. Recent divestments in Canada mean Cornwall Light and Power has some £50 million to invest in its UK onshore wind business, so is looking to accelerate growth, both organically and through acquisition or partnership.
Welcoming Matt to the company’s UK headquarters, in Truro, Cornwall Light and Power CEO, Neil Harris, said: Matt is the ideal professional to lead our expanding development team. He already has specific knowledge on the portfolio of wind projects we acquired from npower-renewables, brings proven wind industry knowhow and is committed to the drive towards carbon-free electricity.
Specialising in smaller, niche and community projects, from single turbines to 20MW clusters, Cornwall Light and Power currently operates projects in Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, County Durham, Cumbria and Gwynedd, has a development pipeline of around 350MW and is actively seeking new partnership opportunities with landowners and developers.
