René Willemars is a new energy expert and a core member of the Energy and Climate & Sustainability practices at Boston Consulting Group. He specializes in renewables, Power-to-X (P2X) and carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).

His recent relevant case experience falls broadly into two categories: first, working with leading developers to develop winning propositions to decarbonize the energy system, industry, and transportation; and second, working with network companies, governments, and regulators to design the energy system of the future.

Most recently, René has focused on creating value by integrating renewables, hydrogen (and its derivatives), and CCUS into solutions to meet the needs of the energy system holistically.
