Renewable Energy

Driven by growing consciousness of global warming, high energy costs and the consumer’s desire for alternative energy sources – Novo’s Alternative and Renewable Energy team has witnessed an explosion of activity in this space worldwide.

From clients who are deploying more sustainable devices, to those who are bringing more energy-efficient processes to their global supply chains and launching carbon-trading mechanisms, the focus on sustainability is significant and enduring. This industry represents the future.  There has been a fundamental shift in our understanding of the importance of energy, how it is managed and most importantly, how it is led and who will catapult the category in the future. 

Our global team is as passionate about serving this space as the executives who lead them. We closely follow the trends that affect alternative and renewable energy, and cover the entire range of specialties in this space, including: 

  • Biofuels and Biomass
  • Carbon Markets
  • GeoThermal
  • Energy Storage
  • Green Building
  • Wind Energy
  • Solar - PV, Thin-Film, Thermal
  • Sustainability and Climate Change

Waste Management

Over recent years there has clearly been an influx of environmental and waste directives from Europe, with the emphasis thus far on areas such as recycling, high technology incineration and landfill management. With the environmental industry concentrating on the development of increased sustainability in waste management practices, there is a greater emphasis on companies to operate to higher standards of professionalism. This has led to the spotlight focusing on regulation, policy, research and development, which in turn has generated a demand to recruit suitably qualified professionals.

Novo Executive Search and Selection have an experienced team of Executive Search Consultants that have worked on a wide range of executive recruitment for the Senior Manager and Director level assignments in this marketplace, so we are very well placed to assist businesses with their executive recruitment and strategic level requirements.
