SgurrEnergy is an engineering consultancy specialising in renewable energy projects. The company is based in Glasgow, Scotland, and has offices in Beijing, China; Pune, India; Paris, France; Wexford, Ireland; Portland, Maine; and Vancouver, British Columbia.

SgurrEnergy was established in 2002 by company directors Ian Irvine and Steve McDonald. The company specialises in wind farms, marine farms, bioenergy systems, hydro energy and solar energy.

SgurrEnergy was a supplier of technical advice to Airtricity on the Braes of Doune wind farm.[1] This wind farm is a milestone as it makes the UK the 8th state in the world to meet the target of having at least 2GW of installed wind energy capacity.[2] SgurrEnergy personnel have given presentations on industry related matters at several conferences and workshops.[3][4]

SgurrEnergy personnel provided ongoing technical support to ScottishPower on the development of Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, Whitelee. Located 20 miles south of Glasgow the wind farm became operational in 2009. SgurrEnergy provided technical due diligence on the wind resource at Q7 offshore wind park off the coast of The Netherlands. This project is the world’s first bank financed wind park.[5] In addition SgurrEnergy provided lenders Dexia and Rabobank with technical advice on the €153M Thorntonbank offshore wind farm off the Belgian coast.[6] They are also providing technical advice on the construction of the first Western-financed wind farm to be built in China.[7]
