His role encompassed engagement with ministers, civil servants, parliamentarians, regulators, and the media, and representing the views of the sector in regular contributions to both print and broadcast media. He was also a member of the First Minister’s Energy Advisory Board and co-chaired the Scottish Government’s Renewable Industry Advisory Board.
Previously he was Press and Government Affairs Manager for the Federation of Small Businesses and SCDI, working on issues such as business rates, better regulation and enterprise support.
Niall has also served as a director of the Association for Scottish Public Affairs and was a member of SSEN’s RIIO-T2 User Group, tasked by Ofgem with guiding and scrutinising the development and delivery of SSEN Transmission’s RIIO-T2 business plan.
