Porter, who has been dealing with UK energy policy issues for 25 years, will also join the agency’s advisory board.

He led a key trade body for electricity producers in its various incarnations from 1987, when it was the Association of Independent Electricity Producers, until 2012 when it was merged with two other organisations to form Energy UK. He was Energy UK’s first chief executive from April to September 2012.

He has also served the UK government’s Renewable Energy Advisory Committee and was a director of the UK Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group.

He will have a part-time role for Brevia as he is also a part-time senior adviser to the London energy practice of US management consultancy Navigant.

Brevia’s energy clients include power generator GDF Suez Energy International and retail gas and electricity provider First Utility.

David Beamer, MD of Brevia, said: "As well as his insight on UK energy policy, David has an extensive network of contacts in the sector that will help Brevia grow in the coming months."
