Ray Hunter has close to 4 decades of experience in renewables and has made significant contributions in the technological development of wind turbines, tidal turbines and wave converters.

He has held posts in R&D, consultancy, technical management, departmental management and technology strategy.

He has headed project development portfolios and has held board positions in a number of industry trade associations.

He has previously worked with the National Engineering Laboratory, TUVNEL, the RES Group and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.




Lewis Hunter obtained his MEng at the esteemed electronic and electrical engineering department at the University of Strathclyde where he will shortly complete his PhD in MVDC studies within the Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Power Networks and Smart Grids.

As well as having state-of-the-art understanding of the radical changes that will occur in distribution grids as a result of high renewables penetration and the expansion of electrical vehicles, Lewis has wide ranging practical skills.



Pete Bowyer has unrivalled expertise and experience in physical oceanographic modelling.

He has built a number of wave and tidal models for a variety of applications and has a knack for uncovering insights and nuances. He has a healthy scepticism of model results and limitations and likes to separate the understood physics from the fudge.

Pete operates SeaMode Oceanographic.



Nigel is a Mechanical Engineer has over 17 years offshore experience, including in wave, tidal, wind (+ floating wind). Nigel likes to take concepts from the drawing board into the water, trying to marry the physics of the problem/situation with practical engineering to get the best solution. Nigel likes to try new methods and innovative methods in his design solutions.



Kyle Smith has 10 years experience working in renewable energy development and operations, from business development and performance engineering for the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer to remote hydropower system upgrades and public electrical distribution system operations.

He has a particular interest in the area integrated energy systems – where electrical power, transport and heating converge. He is currently conducting research in battery electric vehicle charging and low voltage direct current distribution systems at the University of Strathclyde.


Associate Structure

Uaine Gorm has total project focus.

We are committed to providing high value, client orientated services with minimal internal overhead. We achieve this by mobilising around the client project team for the duration of the requirement.

Uaine Gorm’s director, Ray Hunter, has almost 40 years of experience in the renewables sector and has built up a large network of trusted industry professionals, many of whom are now working independently. This gives Uaine Gorm a pool of high calibre expertise that can be trawled as and when required for specific projects.

As well as this horizontal network, Uaine Gorm has linkage to large public and private sector organisations and consultancies to whom we provide useful associate resource without the high cost and obligations of permanent staffing.
