With over 18 years of working within the computer industry, 15 of which was establishing and running his own Computer Business, Huw diversified his activities into the Renewable Energy sector in the late 1990s, becoming involved in the development of a pyrolysis technology that was destined for both the waste and renewable power sectors.In the early 2000s, his vision to establish a significant South Wales based windfarm became a reality when, with joint venture partners, a 37.5 Mw, 15 turbine development was sold to ESB in 2010 and has subsequently been built into an operating asset.
This paved the way to establishing Renewable Developments (Wales) Ltd, a company wholly owned by Huw, specialising in the development of a whole range of commercial scale projects that include wind, solar and biomass.With his local connections, industry expertise and financial partners, Huw heads up a team of professionals that will continue to expand the company.
