About Me

Save Energy Save Money - this has been my business mantra since inception of the company over 25 years ago - and yes it has been hijacked and yes I wish I had patented it at the time!!!

I am totally committed to helping businesses reduce their energy burden and carbon emissions - and hey if they can save some money and become more profitable / competitive by so doing then win win.

I am an RPEC member, MEI Chartered Energy Manager, CIBSE LCC and currently contracted to Resource Efficient Scotland as a Technical Consultant (providing site support to Scottish businesses).  I am also an ESOS Lead Assessor and ISO50001 Lead Auditor.  Not sure what it is worth but I have also been awarded Mastership and Professional Membership of European Energy Centre.

As a Non-Domestic Energy Assessor (NDEA) I provide commercial EPCs and Section 63 assessments and I am also a Non-Domestic Green Deal Advisor which is useful given recent changes to iSBEM in Scotland.

Big interest in commercial lighting - constantly researching and learning about this exciting and rapidly developing field - working closely with many manufacturers of top-end equipment (lighting and controls) here in the UK, I am able to provide full lighting design schemes for any type of property.

Also into Air Source Heat Pumps as one of the most cost effective renewable technologies, working with UK based suppliers to offer heating optimized air to air systems - in other words not air conditioning but dedicated space heating - because let's face it there are only around 20 days a year when most buildings need cooling if we are lucky.

I am in business to save you energy and money.  You will find my trading Terms and Conditions here.
