With his company Aquaflow, Barrie Leay has found a way to overcome the basic fundamental energy problem facing humanity by converting wild algae into biofuel. According to Barrie, algae not only has the ability to produce biofuel, but it also provides us with clean water, which makes it a much more attractive option when compared with other biofuel options such as harvesting food crops for fuel.

Barrie Leay is the Chairman of Aquaflow, which he founded with Vicki Buck and Nick Gerritsen. The company has successfully achieved commercial scale harvesting of wild algae for conversion to biofuel. This process meets rigorous criteria for the use of renewable resources and energy. Barrie has been a leading figure in the reforms of electricity industries in New Zealand and other APEC economies and is also the Chairman of Directors for Windflow Technology Ltd, a Christchurch-based global innovator in wind power turbine design, development and manufacturing.
