Nicky Cowan, a technical industrial heat pump engineer at Star Renewable Energy, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Scottish Renewables Annual Young Professionals Green Energy Awards 2019.
The annual event takes place on May 30 in Glasgow and Nicky said: “I am really honoured to be shortlisted as a finalist for the Achiever Award. I have had the opportunity to become one of a few CIBSE-qualified district heat engineers in Scotland and taken our proposed scheme in the Gorbals from a mere concept to construction-ready.
“I am really passionate about renewable sources of energy, in particular industrial water source and air source heat pumps which we specialise in at SRE. Young people have the power to change the future so hopefully I can inspire others to become engineers in renewable energy.”
Claire Mack, chief executive of Scottish Renewables, said: “The decarbonisation of heat is a huge opportunity for Scotland and increasingly we see heat pumps taking their place as a low-carbon solution. It’s great to see Nicky being recognised in the shortlist for his role in the energy transition.''
