Technician (thermal energy storage)

I am an electronic and electrical engineer who, since 2001, has focused on renewable energy systems. I studied Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Imperial College. I completed the MSc in renewable energy systems at CREST, Loughborough University and then, in 2006, completed a PhD at CREST in stand-alone hydrogen energy storage systems. I worked in the Philippines in 2007-2008 installing renewable energy systems for remote electrification. 

Since then I have run a small consultancy working on a diverse range of projects including grid-connected and off-grid renewable energy systems, data-logging and monitoring systems, product design and embedded hardware.  

I have also run renewable energy technical training courses (including the C&G2360 solar PV installation City and Guild course) and hands-on workshops for a wide range of abilities.
