Dr Carolyn Heeps

Our voice on renewable energy


Carolyn began her career in offshore renewables at The Crown Estate, and 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, and which led to her involvement on projects and consultancy service provision in the USA, France, and Asia Pacific.

Recently Carolyn spent 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 supported Ørsted's successful entry into the region, delivering the role of Consultation Manager in the Environment and Permitting team for the commercial scale development projects off Massachusetts and New Jersey.

Between 2016-2018 Carolyn 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, she founded a unique Charitable Trust to fund projects to understand the environmental impacts of offshore wind. The COWRIE Fund awarded over £3m 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.

Carolyn brings with her a demonstrable track record of achievements on behalf of renewable energy clients around the world.
