Alicia Green

Head of Programme Management & Communications


My job involves managing the Offshore Wind Industry Council's various workstreams which aim to realise the UK Government's Offshore Wind Sector Deal and 50GW by 2030 target.

I report back to the OWIC Board and UK Government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on the progress we are making

The workstreams cover everything from supply chain growth and jobs, to consenting challenges around grid connection, aviation and environmental factors, to innovation, the transition from traditional energy industries and understanding how wind operates as a key part of the wider UK power system.

There is no typical day for me and my role is wide ranging - from project management planning, to engagement with key stakeholders, to communications and speaking events. Having worked in renewables policy before, I enjoy seeing the bigger picture of what our industry's work can achieve and learning about the growth of the sector.

I love meeting new people in the sector and understanding what their roles entail - I was lucky enough to win the Women Powering Smart Energy Rising Star award in 2020 and initiated RenewableUK's Switch project to showcase women working in the sector.

My advice to anyone wanting to work in renewables is you don't have to restrict yourself - there are so many different career paths and opportunities in the sector that you don't have to follow a set route. I once met a Partner of a law firm, working in renewables, who only retrained as a lawyer after having her children. Prior to this she had spent most of her career as a theatre set designer!
