I am a Partner at LCP Delta, with over 15 years' experience specialising in the modelling and analysis of electricity markets. I have worked with clients both in the UK and internationally, leading projects with government, investors, system operators, regulators and a wide range of industry participants examining the challenges and opportunities facing electricity markets.

I lead LCP Delta's long term energy forecasting business in its work on a wide range of projects, from valuations of individual assets (such as battery storage, wind, solar, gas peakers), to exploring the lowest cost pathway to Net Zero power, to finding a portfolio of assets that balances risk and return in a rapidly changing market.

LCP are able to use technical knowledge to appropriately communicate relevant information to aid decision making.
