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