Ailsa Skuodas is the first Leadership Roundtable Fellow. She comes from a background in engineering and renewable energy and, as a young professional, is looking to develop a broad skill set of best practices in management and leadership to take forward into her career, as well as serve the Church.
Previously, Ailsa was a Project Manager at Community Energy Scotland, a nonprofit committed to supporting communities in Scotland with renewable energy projects. These projects primarily focused on energy storage in an area of limited grid capacity, looking to maximize renewable energy generation for maximum local benefit to the community. Funded by the EU, UK, Scottish and local governments, they involved multiple partner collaboration, complex budgets, and cutting edge technology. Prior to this, she also gained project experience working for EDPR UK developing an offshore wind farm, focusing on the substructures that secure the wind turbines to the sea bed, as well as fabrication, logistics, marine operations, and maintenance.
Ailsa received her MEng in Mechanical Engineering with Renewable Energy at The University of Edinburgh.
