Renewable Energy Innovation

I am an electronic and electrical engineer who has been working on renewable energy systems since 1999.

I teach the City and Guilds 2399 course in PV installation at the Centre for Alternative Technology and have given various talks, lectures, courses and workshops to others including CREST, EWB-UK and the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Throughout 2007 and 2008 I was helping to install small renewable energy projects (wind, micro-hydro and solar PV) in the Philippines for a Filipino NGO (Sibol Ng Agham At Teknolihiya). Previously I completed my PhD research into medium sized off-grid renewable energy systems at the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems (CREST) in Loughborough University.

I work on a number of renewable energy related projects, most of which is documented here on this website.

My CV and academic work, including papers and PhD thesis, is here:
