January 2021

Arthur D. Little (ADL) today announced that Robert Clover has been appointed as a Partner at ADL UK, where he will become a member of the company’s Energy & Utilities practice and play a key role in developing its local and international client base in this area especially in respect of the energy transition.

Robert joins ADL from FTI Consulting, where he has been the Managing Director of its Clean Energy Practice for the past five years, delivering strategic advisory work and business model innovation for companies including ENEL, ABB, Siemens, GE, Vestas, Mainstream Renewable Power, Macquarie, Nordex and Total. In particular, he has worked in renewable energy technology development and deployment including onshore/offshore wind, solar PV, storage, hydrogen, hydro and financing innovation. Prior to FTI, Robert was a Partner at MAKE Consulting, a leading research and business intelligence service in the wind sector, and from 2004 to 2012, he was Global Head of Clean Technology Equity Research at HSBC Group plc.

Nick White, Managing Partner of Arthur D. Little UK, comments: “I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Robert, who I’m sure will prove to be a major asset to the Energy & Utilities team. The pressing challenges that the energy transition presents requires people with both vision and experience to tackle them properly. The required technologies are still in their relative infancy, so it’s essential that companies take advice from proven experts in the field.  ADL provides this expertise, combined with deep understanding of the policies, markets and technologies, as well as bringing innovative thinking.  Robert will strengthen our offering considerably.”

Robert Clover, Partner at ADL, adds: “I’m looking forward to helping ADL’s clients handle the energy transition in whatever form it takes, whether it’s helping conventional utilities to diversify their energy mix, or supporting companies who want to embrace cleaner energy alternatives. De-carbonization of the corporate world will remain a key imperative for many years to come, and companies must continue to develop sustainable business models. I am pleased to join ADL, a company with a reputation for both progressive thinking and practical advice in this area.”

Robert holds a Master’s degree from Worcester College, Oxford University and is ACCA certified.
