ABOUT US

Hutcheson Associates provides targeted and tailored support and advice across communications, policy development and regulatory affairs, with a particular focus on energy and infrastructure. 

Founded by Managing Director Niall Stuart in July 2017, the company's clients range from international corporates to small, independent businesses.  

Niall was previously Chief Executive of industry body Scottish Renewables, and brings a hugely-relevant network and knowledge of the policy landscape, having led the organisation’s work on issues such as renewable energy targets, transmission charges and Electricity Market Reform.

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 is a director of the Association for Scottish Public Affairs and 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.
