ORE Catapult’s Stephen Wyatt Running for Scottish Renewables Board

ORE Catapult is supporting a bid by Dr Stephen Wyatt for election to the Board of Scottish Renewables.

Stephen is our Research & Innovation Director, with over 14 years’ experience working in renewables. As the former Director of Innovation at The Carbon Trust, where he was responsible for managing a portfolio of innovation activity in offshore renewables, biomass heat and industrial energy efficiency, we believe the board would truly benefit from Stephen’s extensive expertise and the innovative approach that characterises everything we do at ORE Catapult.

Voting closes at noon on Friday 2nd February at noon, so please: vote now, and vote Wyatt!

Dr Wyatt’s supporting statement is as follows:

“Having worked in the renewables sector for 14 years, first at the Carbon Trust and most recently at the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, I believe I can bring considerable value to the board of Scottish Renewables.  Most of my career has been devoted to addressing market barriers for emerging technologies; first offshore wind, and now increasingly wave, tidal and floating wind.  I want to work with Scottish Renewables to ensure these technologies get the profile and support their potential warrants.

“The commercial membership of Scottish Renewables is of course made up of individual companies with businesses to run and grow, but we are also a collective who are the future smart energy system for Scotland, the broader UK, and the growing markets overseas.  As a board member, I would work with my colleagues to promote the role our sector plays in the future smart, clean, integrated energy system. 

“Against a challenging European environment, I believe we must focus on maintaining access to research and development funding in Scotland and consider how closer links between the research base and industry can work for Scottish Renewables members.  This is especially true for many of the smaller technology-led businesses, but even for members with established products and services, Scotland and the UK must continue protect its future and be able to innovate to maintain a world leading position.”
