The head of Scottish Renewables is to step down from his role this August.
Niall Stuart has been the Chief Executive of the industry body since September 2009.
He plans to set up his own consultancy focused on strategic communications, policy development and regulatory affairs.
Patricia Hawthorn, Chairman of Scottish Renewables said: “Niall has led our staff team during an incredibly important time for our sector and played a leading role in our work to deliver ever-more ambitious targets for the industry – and the policies to deliver these.
“The directors will begin the process of identifying a replacement over the next few weeks as we seek to continue Scottish Renewables’ important work in leading and supporting the development of our sector.”
Research from the industry body reveals Scottish renewable companies are now working in 43 countries around the globe.
