I have followed a career change into the renewable energy industry because I wanted to make a difference for the future generations. I have found that working for a company that aligns with your principles and goals really inspires and energises you. Stay true to your goal and your principles, and it will lead you to the right role and the right company.

Hi, my name is Laure and I am part of the System Design Engineering Team at Vattenfall. My background in geophysics lead to my career starting in seismic processing and imaging of offshore data for a service company in the Oil & Gas industry. I then decided to transition into the Renewable Energy sector and discovered a real interest in offshore wind.

I first joined Vattenfall as an analyst in the Market Development team, where I got to work with colleagues across the engineering, regulations, commercial, valuation and financial teams. It helped me learn about all aspects of our UK projects really fast, while supporting the development of business cases and our understanding of the transmission regime, its uncertainty analysis, its CfD bidding strategy, and certain interfaces between the different internal models.
