Rob Forrest, CEO of GreenPower, Re-Elected as Chair of Scottish Renewables

Rob Forrest, CEO of GreenPower, is delighted to have been re-elected as a Director and Chair of Scottish Renewables, the voice of Scotland’s renewable energy industry.

An election for posts was held recently with a record number of candidates and votes cast with a turnout of nearly 60%.

Rob, elected for a further three years, said, “I am delighted to have received the support of colleagues across the renewables sector and will endeavour to ensure that politicians and the public continue to recognise and value the huge role that renewable energy can make towards reducing the impacts of climate change”

Clair Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables said, “It is great to see so many members engaging in what is a vital process for the proper governance of the organisation at a complex and challenging time for all parts of our industry.

“Increased participation in the election process, alongside the introduction of greater gender diversity, was one of our key organisational objectives, so I am pleased to see both reflected in this outcome.”

Rob was a founding Director of Scottish Renewables in 1999 and its first Chief Executive. He was on the Board until 2010 and returned to the Board in 2016 and was elected as Chair in March 2018.
