Aspen are delighted to say that following our recent recruitment campaign with The Offshore Renewable Energy (Ore) Catapult, they have now appointed a new Non-Executive Director. Ore Catapult is the UK’s leading technology and innovation centre for offshore renewable energy, and they have appointed The Crown Estate’s Director of Energy, Minerals and Infrastructure, Huub den Rooijen, to its Board.

Commenting on the appointment, ORE Catapult chairman Colin Hood said: “Huub brings extensive experience across all areas of the energy market, and in exploiting the UK’s extensive renewable energy resources in particular. He will bring invaluable insight to ORE Catapult’s Board, as we strive to deliver ambitious plans to seize the UK’s huge opportunity from offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.”

Huub den Rooijen said: “With the UK leading the world in both the deployment and management of offshore renewable energy infrastructure, I am excited to be joining ORE Catapult’s Board, and supporting their team in delivering significant UK benefit from both the domestic and international opportunities that these vital, low carbon industries provide.”

Over the next five years, ORE Catapult will continue to drive offshore renewables innovation to grow UK businesses and reduce the cost of clean energy. Working with industry, government and academia, it provides leadership and coordination of the sector’s innovation priorities and supports industry through testing, demonstration, validation and research, enabling success for UK innovators.
