The mostly-wind-driven Scottish Renewables trade association is to recruit a new chief executive.

The current post-holder, Niall Stuart, is quitting to set up a private communications company.

Patricia Hawthorn, chairman of Scottish Renewables, said: “He led our staff team during an incredibly important time for our sector, and played a leading role in our work to deliver ever-more ambitious targets for the industry – and the policies to deliver these.

“The Directors will begin the process of identifying a replacement over the next few weeks as we seek to continue Scottish Renewables’ important work in leading and supporting the development of our sector.

“Whilst there are many challenges ahead, there are also some tremendously exciting opportunities as we seek to decarbonise the wider energy system, and renewable energy clearly has a growing role at the very heart of Scotland’s economy.”
