“I have been in sustainable energy since the 70s. Wave, wind and solar energy – the challenges of developing and operating these technologies have kept me busy. I feel fortunate to have been in an industry that has gone from sponsored research to mainstream power generation in a few decades, to become the favoured source for new electricity projects world-wide. Locally, I want to see the Island move to 100% sustainable power using renewable energy generation and smart grid technologies.
Since the 70s, I have worked on all manner of sustainable energy technologies – from wind powered ships to large scale wind and solar energy. At first people scoffed and said I should get a proper job, but now I work in a multi-billion pound industry that is a first choice for new power generation projects around the world. Here on the Island, I want move us to a smart grid with100% renewable power generation.”
