Managing director and founder
Bruce Valpy founded BVG Associates over ten years ago and has created a rapidly growing, diverse client base that includes start-ups, market leaders, trade bodies, governments, utility providers and multi-nationals on four continents.
Bruce has a first class honours degree in engineering (with economics) from Cambridge University and almost 30 years’ hands-on experience in renewables. He uses his technical, business and economic understanding to help you do new things, think in new ways and solve tough problems.
He has delivered projects from the deeply technical to our most visionary, industry building. His ability to communicate effectively with those with much experience or little means he is often asked to present at industry events, but is just as at home working one-to-one with client’s senior leaders and listening to front-line technical staff.
Before founding BVGA, Bruce led all wind turbine hub and hydraulic/electric pitch system R&D activities for NEG Micon, then led development of Vestas’ largest blades. During this time, Bruce grew an experienced and spirited multi-disciplinary team from 10 to 23 people with budget for design, testing, prototyping and early series manufacture. His team built a reputation for being a creative, reliable, responsive and authoritative internal supplier of quality products. Before this, Bruce led turbine development activities at an innovative UK turbine manufacturer, involving detailed engineering of many aspects of a range of different turbine concepts.
Bruce will give you energy, straight talking and creative ideas based on a lot of experience and a quick-thinking mind.
