ETI names new strategy manager

UK government-industry body the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has named Stuart Bradley to the post of offshore renewables strategy manager, taking responsibility for the organisation’s offshore wind and marine technology programmes.

Bradley, who will work with Simon Cheeseman, the ETI’s marine programme manager and Andrew Scott, its offshore wind programme manager, will spearhead investment cases for projects including the ETI’s proposed floating offshore wind demonstrator off south-west England.

“I am excited to be joining the ETI and to be working on such varied and interesting new technology programmes,” says Bradley.

“Both offshore wind and marine are industries in their relative infancy. These programmes provide a lot of potential to accelerate the development of new technology helping to build viable business propositions through cost reduction and increased reliability.”

Bradly joins the ETI from GE Power Conversion. He will be based at the body’s Loughborough headquarters

ETI deputy chief director Richard Knight says: “The marine and offshore wind technology programmes are two of our most challenging. Stuart’s experience and knowledge of these sectors will be particularly useful as the programmes and projects develop.”
