Gareth Williams

Managing Director, Caplor

[Text Box: Speaking at Hay Festival 2014] Gareth Williams has a deep rooted and evolving passion for the sustainability agenda.  This has led him to develop from his family farming roots into a diversified rural business that includes a renewable energy business, property rental and farming activity based from Herefordshire.  Three generations of the Williams family have operated from Caplor since 1923.

 

A wide range of skills and expertise are rooted around his passions and experience based on sound academic input and ongoing personal development.  An agricultural graduate in 1990, ongoing development centred on; leadership, management, counselling, financial, public speaking, environmental, local council, UK and overseas energy and sustainable based consultancy.  Most recently input from the Herford director forum and Goldman Sachs growth programme at Aston University leading to current position of Visiting Fellow.

 

Caplor Energy - From personal passion and evolving practicality from experience within Caplor’s building and renovation enterprise, CE was established in 2007 and specialises in the design and supply of renewable energy systems for businesses, communities and home owners. Caplor Energy is proud to be one of the region’s leading installers by both reputation and market share.   Caplor has offered innovative community schemes that have allowed a significant number of community organisations to benefit from renewable opportunities and in recent years is spreading that experience into the commercial sector with its own expanding networks of systems. Caplor actively engages within the renewable industry through board membership of the UK Solar Trade association, Board membership of Sustainability West Midlands, chair of Hereford Futures forum and Hereford Green Network to name a few engagements.  Since 2015 Gareth has worked directly with Govt dept BEIS on Solar Policy development in the UK.  He also contributed to Malawi renewable policy in 2016.
