Asset Management and Operational Services Lead
Ryan has a diverse and hands-on background in the renewable energy industry spanning commercial, technical, and operational specialties. After college, Ryan did a stint in the fledgling electric vehicle industry developing early lithium-ion battery technology, and high-performance drivetrains before deciding that utility-scale renewable energy was where he belonged. Ryan started out in the wind industry as a service technician learning from the ground up torquing bolts and greasing turbines, becoming a field engineer, construction manager, site operations manager, OEM warranty manager, and turbine technology expert.
Ryan started in the wind industry working on small turbines from the dawn of the first American wind boom in the 1980s that in some cases still had tails on the back to point them into the wind and has hands-on experience with almost every commercial turbine platform installed in North America.
Ryan’s hands-on experience with many of these legacy turbine platforms that are being discussed today and considered for future repowering decisions may help you make the decision for how to manage your machines and infrastructure assets.
