New Business Development Manager for Energy Systems

We are delighted to welcome Natasha Madeira back to the ETP team.

Natasha is ETP’s Business Development Manager for Energy Systems and is not new to ETP - her previous role was as the International Collaboration Manager for the European North Sea Energy Alliance (ENSEA) collaborative initiative. That role supported the development of European networks and projects relating to Energy Systems Integration (ESI) with the aim of increasing the proportion of renewable and low carbon energy sources in the energy system.

The new Energy Systems Business Development role will seek to build upon Natasha’s previous work and take forward many of the opportunities which it identified. Natasha worked as a Business Development Executive for Heriot-Watt University’s School of the Built Environment, prior to joining ETP. Before that, Natasha spent 9 years working as an environmental professional in a Scottish Environmental Consultancy in areas covering Environmental Policy, Sustainable Construction and Engineering, Waste Reduction, Water and Resource Management, Biodiversity and Strategic Environmental Assessment.

As Sales & Marketing Director for a Scottish SME, Stephen-Mark experienced the complete funding landscape, applying for and winning PDF, SMART, SPUR, RDF and Framework contracts. More recently, he has been involved in commercial negotiating and training. Now, as ETP’s Executive Director, Stephen-Mark aims to enthuse and galvanise all ETP energy researchers in developing collaborative activity that will attract increased European and global interest, and augment the R&D capacity of the Scottish energy industry.

About ETP

The Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) is an alliance of twelve independent Scottish Universities, engaged in world class energy related Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D).

ETP is the largest power and energy research partnership in Europe and promotes greater levels of collaboration between universities and industry to deliver unparalleled energy capability and core research strengths across a broad range of energy technologies but with a current focus on Wind Energy, Marine Energy, Grid, Power Systems & Networks, Solar Energy, Bio-Energy, Heat Energy, Energy Systems, Carbon Capture and Storage, Energy Conversion and Storage, Energy Utilisation in Buildings and Oil & Gas.

Coupled with research pooling, this provides an integrated energy technologies community that is providing strong leadership in the UK/EU/global energy arenas. The cohesion displayed by the Energy Technology Partnership is exemplary and provides a strong basis for collaboration with a wide variety of business, public sector and other partners. This has enabled ETP to build on its foundation of research excellence and increase its impact in the areas of Knowledge Exchange and Skills.

ETP’s network of Business Development Managers can share the emergent best practice between academia and industry and help Scottish SMEs identify the best possible support available.
