Learning Hydro Limited
is owned and run by David Williams and Gordon Black who have extensive knowledge and experience across the spectrum of run-of-river hydropower schemes from 1kW up to 10MW. More importantly, they have a passion for sharing their insight and take great pleasure in assisting anyone with an interest in the field to grow their competency.
David has spent his whole career in hydropower and has recently retired from his position as Chief Executive Officer of the
British Hydropower Association, a position he held for eight years.

- held at various locations around the UK
- 3 bespoke courses (each lasting one day) - clients; a private energy consultancy firm, Local Energy Scotland, and GE Renewable Energy (Europe)
