EverPower Renewables Corp., a developer of utility-grade wind power projects, has hired wind energy industry veteran Chris Shears as senior vice president of development. Shears will assume a senior role in the development group and will be responsible for evaluating new business opportunities.

"Chris' 15 years in the wind industry make him an exceptional addition to our team," says Jim Spencer, managing director for Everpower. "With wind projects in four states, we are confident that Chris' expertise will help us continue this growth."

Most recently Shears served as director for Renewable Energy Systems Ltd. in Great Britain, where he worked since 1994.

Shear and his family will be relocating to New York City.
