Smart Energy & Sustainability

So, what are we about?

This is the elevator pitch. We’re helping clients to unlock cheaper, cleaner and more reliable energy and maximise the potential economic and environmental value of their projects, whilst delivering on wider environmental and sustainability principles. Alternatively, here’s the You Tube pitch.  

In the first quarter of 2021, you’ll find us talking at leading-events from Business Insider and PlaceNorthWest on the roadmap to net zero and how we can embrace the green industrial revolution. We’re passionate about our subject matter and shaping the UK’s response to the climate emergency – here’s our Divisional Director, Josh Bullard talking about the subject matter in summer 2020.  

Our team is a unique blend of engineers and consultants and this means we can deliver a wide range of project inputs for our clients from the earliest inception stages and onwards. 

Most importantly, you’ll find us a lively, good-spirited team, excited about what we’re doing and enjoying each other’s company, and we’ll be sure to give you a warm welcome too.
