London, UK – The Renewables Consulting Group (RCG), a sector specialist advisory firm, today announced the appointment of floating offshore wind specialist Dan Kyle Spearman to lead its global floating offshore wind practice.
As floating offshore wind will be a key renewable energy technology in the energy transition to net zero carbon emissions, RCG has ramped up its advisory and service offerings as a result.

As part of the proceedings, Spearman worked closely with fifteen of the leading international developers and Scottish Government to make both fixed and floating offshore wind into mainstream energy sources. Moreover, Spearman worked with developers to address the technical challenges for deployment of future large-scale floating farms, giving insight into the challenges and opportunities of floating wind and engaging with the floating wind supply chain to implement the results.
