RenewableUK has named three new members of policy and external affairs team, along with six appointments made to the board of the organization.

The new head of policy for RenewableUK is Barnaby Wharton, formerly the CBI’s senior policy adviser on energy and climate change.

Wharton spent five years at the CBI, covering a wide range of business issues, focusing for the last three years on energy and climate change, RenewableUK said.

Marina Valls has joined the organization in the newly created role of economist. Previously she worked for a gas storage operator as a market and policy analyst.

Also, the newly appointed policy manager, Rebecca Williams, will take up her post in June, sitting alongside the two existing policy managers. Williams will join RenewableUK from WWF, where she currently manages the work on the power sector, covering policy from the UK, EU and internationally.

The UK’s trade body for tidal, wave, and wind energy, RenewableUK, has also announced the results of its latest board election.

The six successful candidates are senior industry figures, some of which include Lindsay McQuade, Director of Policy & Innovation at ScottishPower Renewables; Stephen Bull, Senior Vice President New Energy Solutions – Wind and Carbon Capture & Storage at Statoil; and Zoe Keeton, Head of Energy Policy and Public Affairs at Innogy Renewables UK.
