Iain Todd is an independent consultant specialising in the creation and development of innovative renewable energy projects, largely in the east coast of Scotland.
Formerly Director of Renewable Energy at the DTI in London, and for 10 years Renewables Champion for the city of Aberdeen, he has a wide knowledge of project development across a wide range of renewable technologies.
Key projects with which Iain has been associated include:
