Joe joined Renewable Risk Advisers from Lloyd Warwick International where he was a senior loss adjuster in their renewable energy team. His work focused on settling major and complex insurance claims across UK/Europe and North America, mostly in offshore power generation and transmission. Prior to this he led investment by International Power (now ENGIE) into what remains the world’s largest underwater power station, MeyGen in northern Scotland. He then went on to develop a tidal site in Canada, for Bluewater Energy Services alongside Minas Energy which secured the world’s highest feed-in tariff.
