Richard St. George
"Public support for renewable energy is due in large part to the vision of pioneers at the Centre for Alternative Technology, such as Richard St George, who has died of cancer aged 61.  In 1975, when he arrived, the grandly named centre was a few ruined buildings in an abandoned quarry in mid-Wales, the dream of Gerard Morgan-Grenville... He remained a trustee and was enormously proud of CAT's reputation as Europe's leading demonstration centre for sustainable living." He set "up Low Energy and Solar Supplies, one of the UK's early solar companies..." He served for many years as director of the Schumacher Society, and is survived by his partner, Carol Haywood.
