Chief Executive Officer of Wavepower, David Rubie-Todd, has been nominated as one of the finalists of the Scottish Renewables’ (SR) 2017 Young Professionals Green Energy Awards.
Wind, wave, bioenergy, tidal, solar and hydrogen power, as well as renewable and low-carbon heat and the emerging field of energy storage, are all represented in the work of the 35 finalists of the 2017 Young Professionals Green Energy Awards, SR informed.
David Rubie-Todd has been nominated a finalist in the Business Development Award category, having grown the wave energy technology development company Wavepower from three to 33 employees in a little over two years.
As reported earlier, Wavepower has last month revealed plans to set up a research and development office in Ireland, creating up to 10 advanced engineering research jobs.
Jenny Hogan, Director of Policy at Scottish Renewables, said: “It’s impossible not to be impressed by the quality and quantity of entries received for this year’s Young Professionals Green Energy Awards.
“Our industry is home to some very skilled and talented people and these awards, for the third year, aim to recognise their achievements and motivate others to emulate their successes. Everyone on the shortlist should be proud of what they have achieved in their careers so far.”
The event, to be held on May 25, 2017 at Glasgow Science Centre, was launched in 2015 to showcase the enormous range of fresh talent in the renewable energy sector.
