ALL IN A DAYS WORK ALL IN A HABITAT: AHEAD OF HIS TIME...


It was a foregone conclusion from a very early age that Christos would be a shining light within the renewables energy field. His enthusiasm was borne from a genuine interest and care for the environment. Matched with the first flickers of enthusiasm and a strong belief, he became the founder member at his high school to instigate a recycling programme, bringing on board his fellow class mates.


This was entirely run by the students with no input from his tutors. Breaking the mould, and adding yet another ‘first’ to his list, he became one of the first members of Greenpeace in Greece.


HIGHER EDUCATION


Upon leaving school he studied for an engineering degree, undertaking his thesis on ‘renewable energy sources’ which in those days was a little know field - Christos began to share this knowledge , within an education capacity to various organisations and institutions.

DAY’S WORK


CHRISTOS KOLLIATSAS OF MOTT MACDONALD


OCCUPATION: Wind Leader and Board Member of European Wind Energy Assocation (EWEA) Glasgow


1998 he moved to the UK and completed a Masters Degree in Energy Systems and the Environment, graduating in 1999 and looking for employment. With limited job opportunities he set a different course and attended an evening class for entrepreneurial studies whereupon he gained experience in strategic planning.


Successfully acquiring a grant, his engineering consultancy was formed. However, as is the way with specialist projects and unforeseen delays, this ultimately led to the demise of his business. He looks back and admits there was a touch of naivety, but his spirit was not to be quashed. In the wilderness of the job market he undertook various roles to support himself until he happened upon an open day in 2006 for engineering vacancies. And so the next chapter begins.


NEW CHAPTER Christos joined Mott MacDonald, a global engineering, management and development consultancy with over 15,000 staff worldwide, exposing him to diverse experiences. He has subsequently been involved in significant challenges and


opportunities within the fields of renewable energy. His journey involved a rounded approach to all sectors of the renewable energy market including wind, hydro and solar. He also got involved with gas, oil and coal projects, of which he learnt there were a lot of synergies between these sectors, allowing him a broad overview.
