Key appointment boosts renewables capability in North America

Dr Carolyn Heeps has joined Lloyd’s Register to lead the growth of the company’s renewable energy business in North America.

Heeps began her career in offshore renewables at The Crown Estate, where she led the first two rounds of leasing in the UK offshore wind sector. She has since worked with Fred Olsen Renewables and the RES-Group where she was responsible for new market opportunities. This led her to working on projects and consultancy service provision in the USA, France, and Asia Pacific. Most recently she spent over two years working with the Ørsted team in their new US business in Boston, MA. Drawing on expert knowledge of the local regulatory environment and stakeholder engagement, she supportedØrsted’s successful entry into the region, delivering the role of Consultation Manager within the Environment and Permitting team for the commercial scale development projects off Massachusetts and New Jersey.
Between 2016-2018 she held the Chair of the American Wind Energy Association’s Offshore Committee), and in 2017 was recognised as one of the “100 Women in Wind” report. She also has special interests in sustainable development, STEM education, public outreach and workforce development. In 2001, whilst at The Crown Estate, Heeps founded a unique Charitable Trust to fund projects to understand the environmental impacts of offshore wind. The COWRIE Fund awarded over £3mn to over 20 projects in the UK and achieved recognition through the development of standardised methodologies for a range of environmental surveys, that now have global application.
Karl Ove Ingebrigtsen, LR’s Director of Low Carbon Power Generation said, “I am thrilled to welcome Carolyn to the team, as she brings with her a demonstrable track record of achievements on behalf of renewable energy clients around the world. Her commitment and expertise is a fantastic addition to LR’s already world-class capability in the sector and we look forward to supporting the growth of low carbon power in North America.”Heeps added, “As Head of Renewables, North America for Lloyd’s Register I am delighted to have joined such a prestigious organisation and to be given the opportunity to expand our service provision in this exciting new market. Building a US team that can draw upon the existing expertise of such an experienced and diverse organisation already very active in the renewables sector, as well as developing new specialist skills and talent, is an exciting proposition.”
