Following a degree in chemical engineering, Tim spent 15 years in the aerospace industry before redirecting his career to the renewables and energy sector. He worked for 3 years as Business Development Director for Quiet Revolution, a vertical axis wind turbine startup, before joining Solarcentury, where he spent 7 years in sales & business development building commercial & industrial and utility scale solar projects and implementing over 600MW of solar in the UK. Tim became Managing Director EMEA for Solarcentury in 2017, looking after the company’s development and delivery businesses in Europe and Africa, while growing a multi GW pipeline, focusing on Spain, France and the Netherlands.
Tim left Solarcentury in 2018 and aimed to broaden his renewables experience into the wider low carbon energy space, pursuing his personal goal to make an impact on the effects of climate change whilst creating real benefits for UK communities. As a demonstrator project with substantial potential for UK wide roll out, Energy Superhub Oxford (ESO) provided exactly the type of joined-up thinking Tim was interested in, combining EV infrastructure, heat and power. Tim joined Pivot Power as Programme Manager for the ESO project in June 2019 and is looking forward to helping this multi-partner consortium achieve its goals over the next three years.
Tim’s wider interests include many outdoor sports, including cycling, hiking and climbing. He has a passion for music and loves travelling and camping, which he, his partner and their 11-year-old daughter enjoy with their recently acquired campervan.

The move to cleaner economic growth – through low carbon technologies and the efficient use of resources – is one of the greatest industrial opportunities of our time. By one estimate, the UK’s clean economy could grow at four times the rate of GDP. Whole new industries will be created and existing industries transformed as we move towards a low carbon, more resource-efficient economy.
The UK has been at the forefront of encouraging the world to move towards clean growth. Meet the Oxfordshire companies who are determined to play a leading role in providing the technologies, innovations, goods and services of this future.
