Max Peel is an Associate in RCG’s London office. He has expertise in business development, levelised cost modelling and a thorough understanding of renewable energy technologies and associated policies.

Mr Peel has experience in levelised cost of hydrogen (LCoH) modelling, alongside offshore wind levelised cost of energy (LCoE) modelling. He has business development experience in identifying opportunities and supporting revenue growth within the financial technology (FinTech) sector. Mr Peel has a proven track record in presenting to senior management and success in developing strategies to translate technical information for non-technical audiences.

Mr Peel brings to RCG his experience in LCoE and LCoH modelling, acquired during his sustainable energy masters at Imperial College London. While there, his thesis was in partnership with a consultancy firm, and it investigated the transmission alternatives for hydrogen production from floating wind. Mr Peel is also a committed Climate Reality Leader, therefore has an in-depth understanding of present climate challenges and solutions, and how to communicate them effectively to organisations. Since joining RCG, he has been responsible for developing RCG’s LCoE modelling, which can forecast offshore wind cost competitiveness globally. Mr Peel has experience in conducting technical due-diligence and market intelligence research within floating wind, which he will utilise as a part of the floating wind team.

Mr Peel trained as a physicist to masters level. He also holds a masters qualification in sustainable energy engineering, which included training in a wide range of renewable energy technologies, economics and policies.
