Mark Hollands, Director of Energy Strategy
Mark’s primary role at BSR is to ensure we remain as innovative and competitive as possible. This involves understanding the commercial impact of design changes or new technologies, and ensuring we get the best deals when it comes to selling the power from our solar parks. He even secured a 15-year PPA for the power output from Wroughton Solar Park, which increased its value by around £3m and will supply HSBC with enough energy to power their Canary Wharf offices for 15 years.
“From a young age, I have been concerned about the world’s response to climate change. Specifically, I want to ensure that we can replace as much carbon intensive energy sources with low carbon sources – and do it with the most pioneering projects possible. Whilst I am passionate about low carbon technology in general, solar makes particular sense to me, as all energy is fundamentally derived from the sun.”
