BVG Associates names new Director

UK-based renewable energy consultancy BVG Associates (BVGA) has appointed Neil Douglas as its Director.

Douglas joins BVGA having spent 20 years at Natural Power, most recently as Director of LCOE, and holds a Masters in Energy Systems and the Environment from the University of Strathclyde.

Based in BVGA Scottish headquarters in Fife, Douglas will lead BVGA’s Scottish team in developing relationships with the Scottish renewable community, including enablers, governments, financiers, developers and manufacturers.

Commenting on his appointment, Neil Douglas said:

“I’m especially looking forward to helping the industry succeed commercially in a ‘subsidy free’ world, as well as contributing to a low carbon economy.”

Bruce Valpy, Managing Director of BVGA, said: “Neil’s appointment reflects our positive view of the future of renewable energy generation and energy systems, not just in Scotland but across the globe.”

BVGA added that Douglas will also play a key role in expanding BVGA’s wind farm life extension, asset optimisation and due diligence work to new clients and new geographies.
