ArcVera Renewables, provider of consulting and technical services for wind, solar and storage projects, has recruited Kevin Lichtenstein as Director – Solar Energy Group, Global. Lichtenstein’s extensive solar energy experience and renewable energy acumen will strengthen ArcVera’s rapidly growing solar project technical services practice worldwide.
Lichtenstein’s renewable energy career began in 2007 as PV Design Engineer with a Colorado-based development company. He later joined Solar City (Tesla) in 2011 where he led an internal design team. At RGS in 2013, Lichtenstein technically led solar technology selection while managing a technical staff of designers and engineers. For the last 5 years, Lichtenstein was a Director with Luminate, a Denver, Colorado-based technical consultancy and independent engineering firm. Lichtenstein managed projects of all types of technologies including solar, storage and wind; performing independent engineering due diligence, and he provided technical advisory services on hundreds of financed transactions with various financing structures to inform sponsors, lenders and other stakeholders of project risks.
“ArcVera is rapidly expanding its technical services to globally support the energy industry’s ongoing transition from fossil generation to renewables. Solar, storage, and wind energy are the most critical sources of electricity generation in the power sector and ArcVera has aligned its renewable energy practice to provide expertise and services support for this dominant renewables triumvirate. Kevin’s experience will underpin ArcVera Renewables’ ability to provide independent engineering to support solar energy project development with and without storage or wind, from early-stage greenfield through financing, construction and operations,” says John Bosche, President and Principal Mechanical Engineer.
ArcVera Renewables offers renewable energy consulting services internationally, and recently expanded with the establishment of its newest office in Bangalore, India where solar energy is now growing apace with wind energy. Kevin will lead ArcVera’s core solar technical team based in the US and abroad developing technical resources to support solar project development, financing, and technical advisory services.
