Industry body Scottish Renewables has appointed seven new directors to its board.
An election for the posts saw 20 eligible candidates enter the ballot, with a record turnout of 65 per cent of the organisation’s 260 member companies voting.
Along with the high number of votes, the election process also saw a greater focus on gender diversity – a key objective in the elections.
Those appointed for full three-year terms are:
