The Welsh Government is establishing a publicly owned renewable energy developer – Trydan Gwyrdd Cymru. Its purpose is to put net zero and the communities of Wales at the heart of the transition required to address the huge challenge of climate change. Trydan Gwyrdd Cymru will scale up the rollout of renewable energy projects across the Welsh public estate, principally through onshore wind and solar PV technologies. We aim to have more than one gigawatt of locally owned, locally generated clean energy by 2040. We have a genuine opportunity to produce an income that will be reinvested in improving people’s lives in Wales as well as creating good quality, clean energy jobs.
This new company should drive a new approach to delivering benefits from renewables that really make a difference to communities. The current cost of living crisis underlines the importance of energy in our society and involving people in developing different models of benefit sharing will be crucial to the company’s success.
We are looking for three Non-Executive Directors to join our newly appointed Independent Chair and Chief Executive Officer who together will form the Board of Directors responsible for setting and delivering a clear vision for the company.
You will have a passion and commitment to making a real difference for current and future generations, with a constant appetite for improvement. Good candidates will bring a proven track record of leadership experience working at a senior level. You will possess a knowledge of, or interest in the renewable energy sector. The strongest applicants will be able to demonstrate their ability to engage with a broad range of stakeholders across industry, central and local government, and partners across both the public and private sectors.
If you have the skills, knowledge, and lived experiences to help lead and support Trydan Gwyrdd Cymru, whatever your background, we would very much be interested in hearing from you.
