Chris Hewett – who has been head of policy since June – has been promoted as new chief executive of the Solar Trade Association.
He brings 25 years’ of experience having previously headed up the Environment Agency’s climate change team. He previously also worked for Green Alliance, IPPR and the Finance Innovation Lab
Jonathan Selwyn, Chairman of the STA, said: “Solar power is poised to play a lead role at the heart of the UK’s smart energy transformation, but making the economics of solar work today depends on pursuing every opportunity to boost markets, including securing effective regulatory change
“We are delighted to have appointed Chris to the role of Chief Executive. He brings tremendous experience and skills to the association at this critical juncture.”
The STA will be reviewing its strategic plan early in the New Year and members will be invited to contribute to this at the annual meeting in Spring 2018.
