The Renewables Consulting Group (RCG) has named Doug Pfeister as a Director and Co-Regional Head for North America, based out of the company’s office in New York City.
This addition to the RCG team underscores the firm’s focus on the U.S. renewable energy sector. Pfeister is working with a team of specialist engineers and subject matter experts providing independent technical services for utilities, developers, financial services companies, turbine vendors, and government agencies.
Pfeister made the decision to join RCG following a tenure at TÜV SÜD PMSS as a Senior Vice President. Previously, he led the Offshore Wind Development Coalition in the US, as Acting President in 2014 and Senior Vice President in 2010-13. From 2006 to 2010, he was Head of Siting and Permitting at the offshore wind developer NRG Bluewater Wind, where he participated in negotiations for the first US offshore wind power purchase agreement in Delaware.

“I am delighted to be joining the world-class team at RCG and working to deliver specialized expert services to the global renewable energy industry,” said Pfeister. “This firm’s ‘sleeves-rolled-up’ approach will only to continue to serve the burgeoning US offshore wind sector, as well as other renewables technologies, very well.”
