Brian Stewart works for a large independent M&E Building Services Consultants in Glasgow as a CAD Manager is responsible for creating 2D/3D drawings and models on a wide range of projects around the UK. He shares some of his interests and what attracted him to invest in the Gower Regeneration share offer:
“…being involved in supporting local inward investment, communities and creating long term skilled jobs, and a greener more sustainable future for generations to follow is very important.”
My hobbies range from gardening & cycling, to technology & computers and much in-between. I’m a Member of CIBSE, AUGI UK, and recently joined SEDA Scottish Ecological Design Association. I’m also very interested in smart home technology and energy saving devices which help reduce our energy costs and carbon footprint.
As my existing home doesn’t have options for adding solar roof PV panels or other renewables I wanted to diversify by investing in community based energy projects that are generating their own power and reducing reliance on large energy suppliers who’s fuel mix is still mostly fossil fuels.
I also think that being involved in supporting local inward investment, communities and creating long term skilled jobs, and a greener more sustainable future for generations to follow is very important. I had an early interest in solar power and as performance has increased and the costs reduced they can now compete with cheaper fossil fuels without all the pollution and wasted centralised energy.
“Supporting projects such as Gower Regeneration and receiving a decent return on investment is far better than the interest received on traditional banking savings accounts”
I would encourage many others to invest and be part of a growing number of communities joining in to support clean-energy alternatives and greener future. Supporting projects such as Gower Regeneration and receiving a decent return on investment is far better than the interest received on traditional banking savings accounts, which are only short term. Whether solar, wind, hydro, biomass, district heating, battery storage or electric vehicle charging; are all proven technologies which are continually improving and becoming ever more affordable in villages, towns and cities around the planet.
