Head of Section, Environmental and Permitting
Mr. Roberge is the Head of Section for Environmental and Permitting Services at DNV GL with ten years of renewable energy experience. He is responsible for business development and leads a team of twenty biologists, GIS specialists, land use planners, geologists and engineers who provide comprehensive permitting services for clients in all North American jurisdictions. Mr. Roberge has permitting experience in most of Canadian provinces, attended more than 50 public meetings for renewables energy projects and participated in public hearings in Quebec. He leads the CanWEA National Siting and Environmental Issues Group that focused mostly on decommissioning and reclamation, aviation, noise, bats and cumulative impact assessments this year. He is also working with AWEA on the development of industry positions for sound, shadow flicker, decommissioning and setbacks. He hopes that some of his work can facilitate the widespread deployment and operation of renewables to address climate change and positively impact society and the planet.
