Melanie graduated as a civil engineer and has a PhD in the field of geotechnical engineering. Most of her career (over 30 years) has been with Transport for London, where she gained a broad depth of experience across a range of technical and management roles including design, maintenance project delivery and asset management, including strategic and business planning of capital and operational plans. In 2015 she became an independent consultant specialising in asset management, business case development and investment appraisal, working with various organisations to help them maximise value and to achieve cost savings through improved decision making. Melanie is passionate about the environment and was keen to transfer her knowledge to the renewable energy sector so was delighted to have the opportunity to join ReEnergise in 2020. She is primarily involved in the early stages of a project undertaking cost benefit analysis, feasibility studies and project scoping.
