In 2006, she was appointed by Royal Dutch Shell to develop its global LNG (liquefied natural gas) strategy. She moved on to become the vice-president of technology strategy at the energy major.

Following three years as Shell’s head of commercial power and senior deal lead, she was appointed as chief risk officer at the then-UK Government owned Green Investment Bank. She continued to develop sustainable energy projects across the world with Macquarie, following its acquisition of the Green Investment Bank, where, until April this year, she helped identify disruptive emerging technologies in the energy sector. 

In addition to her role at CENSIS, Ms Redmond is a non-executive director for the SQN Asset Finance Income Fund and an advisory board member of the University of Cambridge’s Energy Policy Research Group.
