Bill is a chartered engineer and member of CIBSE. Having run a successful small business for 12 years, in 2007 he studied for an MSc in renewable energy at the Centre for Alternative Technology. It was here that he met Dan Jones and Rob Gwillim. In 2010 Bill and Dan co-founded Redcotec. Since then Bill has been at the forefront of dozens of renewable energy projects ranging from the electrical design for some of the first PV farms in the UK to project management of medium scale wind turbines and design of biomass boiler and heat main systems for stately homes.
Dan is a chartered engineer with a background in new technology research. He holds a degree and PhD in engineering as well as a master’s degree in renewable energy. He co-founded Redcotec with Bill in 2010. Dan specialised in energy management and carried out a wide variety of energy assessments for schools and local authority buildings. He led on the installation of onshore meteorological masts and subsequent analysis of wind data, GIS visual impact analysis for wind turbines and the development of remote monitoring systems. He developed a number of in-house software tools for modelling energy use and assessing the benefits of renewable energy technologies alongside energy conservation measures. Dan is currently working on the deployment of new manufacturing technologies and innovations for the life sciences industry.
Rob is widely experienced in the field of renewable energy and energy conservation having carried out projects for an extensive variety of organisations from blue chip companies to community groups since entering this field in 1989. He has been an accredited Carbon Trust Assessor and worked for the National Energy Foundation. Rob developed and was programme leader for the successful CAT/University of East London Masters course for Renewable Energy in the Built Environment. He currently works part time for a national conservation organisation where he is the senior project manager for the installation of hydro-electric schemes. Rob's theoretical and practical knowledge of renewable energy is second to none, we benefit greatly from his role as Redcotec's technical director.
