Rick sq

Rick is a Policy Manager at the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE). He focusses primarily on opening up markets and enabling greater penetration of Demand Side Response (DSR) and storage solutions.

As we move away from a model based around centralised, fossil fuel-based generation, allowing these innovative business models and disruptive technology to flourish will be key to achieving a flexible, decarbonised system.

Before joining the ADE, Rick worked in environmental policy in India and Vietnam, before studying an MSc. at LSE.
