Director, Star Renewable Energy
Dave has worked in industrial cooling since 1996, first in compressor R&D for Howden Compressors in his native Glasgow, then for Star Refrigeration Ltd. Early projects included ice rinks, cold storage, high performance data centres as well as process cooling for petrochemical facilities. In 2009 after a period at food freezer experts, Starfrost, Dave moved back to Star as Director of Innovation. Within months a path into Renewable Heating was plotted for the business and following several successes including Drammen Fjernwarme’s 90C ammonia district heat plant, the business established Star Renewable Energy to focus on “clean heat”. A former director of Scottish Renewables and current Chair of CEED SCOTLAND, a business to business knowledge sharing hub, Dave is current Chair of the RHC Platform as it drives forward a mission for 100% RHC by 2050.
