We are excited to announce that the second episode of ReWiRE’s new Podcast Series is now available.

‘Women like me’ provides a glimpse into the lives of women from across the clean energy sector.

In our second podcast Rachel Hayes, head of networks and development and founder of ReWiRE, interviews Dr Cathy McClay.  Cathy is trading and optimisation director at Sembcorp Energy UK, which has the largest portfolio of distributed, flexible assets operating in the GB market.

Cathy has 20 years’ experience in the electricity industry. She has worked for a number of energy companies in the UK, France and the Netherlands, specialising in modelling and analysis for trading, risk management and strategy. Immediately prior to joining Sembcorp she was Head of Future Markets at National Grid SO where she was responsible for developing the GB electricity and gas markets. A key focus was on opening up the ancillary serviced markets to new sources of flexibility such as demand side response.

Cathy is an engineer with a PhD from St John’s College, Cambridge and is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.
