The chief executive of Scottish Renewables has announced he will leave the organisation in August.
Niall Stuart has held the role since September 2009 and plans to set up his own consultancy, which will focus on strategic communications, policy and regulatory affairs.
The chairman of Scottish Renewables, Patricia Hawthorn, said the search for his successor will start in the next few weeks.
“I have greatly enjoyed my time with Scottish Renewables, and it is clear that we have all achieved a huge amount over the last seven years,” said Stuart.
“We have grown our sector to become the country’s main source of electricity – more than doubling capacity since 2009 – and recently secured government support for a new renewable energy target for 2030.”
Hawthorn said the outgoing chief executive had played “a leading role in our work to deliver ever-more ambitious targets for the industry and the policies to deliver these”.
“Whilst there are many challenges ahead, there are also some tremendously exciting opportunities as we seek to decarbonise the wider energy system, and renewable energy clearly has a growing role at the very heart of Scotland’s economy,” added Hawthorn.
