SgurrEnergy, a renewable energy consultancy firm based in Glasgow, Scotland, has set up an office Vancouver, British Columbia, which will be the company's fourth overseas office.

Wind power expert Eric Walker, who previously headed up SgurrEnergy's Beijing office, has returned to his native Canada to spearhead the company's drive to capitalize on the country's green energy push.

"The potential exploitable wind resource in British Columbia has been estimated at 5,000 MW," says Walker. "It therefore makes perfect sense for SgurrEnergy to set up in the province's largest city, Vancouver, in order to tap into this large pipeline of project work that will require an extensive knowledge of wind farm development."

SgurrEnergy is involved in a number of projects on the West Coast of North America, from Oregon to British Columbia, ranging from large commercial developments to community initiatives.

The consultancy is currently undertaking a recruitment drive in Canada and aims to employ up to 12 people, ranging from engineers with experience in the wind industry to project managers with a proven track record, for the Vancouver office over the next 24 months.
