Victoria Mackay

I am currently project managing Community Energy Futures and Community Energy Scotland’s Climate Justice Fund projects in Malawi (Solar Ovens & Sitolo Microgrid). 

I have a BSc in Earth Science and an MSc in Hydrogeology. I have extensive experience in the third sector supporting and advocating for communities in areas of high fuel poverty, and have worked on a range of low carbon heat projects specialising in geothermal, and water/ground source heat resource analysis.  

I believe that community-based action and the ability to manage and control energy locally is crucial to the growth of renewable energy and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. As a low carbon heat specialist, I am keen to see real progress being made to meet the very challenging heat decarbonisation targets that have been set in the coming years and hope to contribute to these both professionally and personally.  

I like to keep fit and can often be seen out and about running with my Labrador, Scout, who sets a mean pace, keeps me motivated and saves me a fortune in gym fees.
