The man behind the beard: Summer Intern at RVE.SOL Tom Hiorns
Don’t let the beard and glasses fool you, Tom is more than just a sustainable energy geek, he’s a multicultural engineer with a passion for real solutions that make a difference, energy as a human right you might say. From the UK to France to Portugal, Tom gives us a little insight into his projects at work and outside.
1. Tom, tell us a little about yourself, what drew you to this industry and/or lead you to this position?
I am from the UK, I am 26 and I am currently writing my thesis with RVE. SOL for an MSc in Energy technologies with KIC InnoEnergy. I am interested in renewable and sustainable energy development due to the impact and benefit such developments can have on energy security and energy availability to billions of people without access to reliable energy, water and basic needs. But also for the further reaching political and social benefits alternative and sustainable energy access can have on our entire planet.
