Aberdeen academic scoops green energy award

An academic from the University of Aberdeen has won a prestigious green energy award for his work on environmental monitoring for offshore energy projects.

Dr Benjamin Williamson, from the School of Biological Sciences, was named as the recipient of the Engineer Award at the Young Professionals Green Energy Awards 2017, organised by Scottish Renewables.

Dr Williamson received the award in recognition of his work in developing innovative designs and delivering novel engineering solutions for environmental monitoring around tidal turbines.

He said: “I am honoured to have received this award for the work enabled by the Knowledge Transfer Partnership between MeyGen Ltd and the University of Aberdeen.

“It has been a real team effort to apply the techniques for monitoring around tidal turbines developed in the NERC FLOWBEC project to a cutting-edge application.”

Around 300 people from Scotland's renewable energy industry gathered at Glasgow Science Centre last week to celebrate and recognise the contribution being made by the next generation of leaders from across the industry.

Dr Williamson will now go on to compete for the Rising Star Award at the Scottish Green Energy Awards, which will be held in Edinburgh on November 30.

Jenny Hogan, Director of Policy at Scottish Renewables, said:
"Once again the renewable energy industry has come together to celebrate some truly worthy winners.

"Those who’re celebrating after the awards – and indeed all those who were shortlisted – should feel proud of the contribution they are making to tackling climate change and modernising our energy system.”
