About Me - Stewart King
About me - Save Energy Save Money
So I am Stewart King - professional Energy Consultant with more than 25 years experience.
Save Energy Save Money has been my business strap-line since I started in 1991 - and yes it has been hijacked many times and yes I wish I had copyrighted 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.
About me - qualifications
I am an RPEC member (Register of Professional Energy Consultants), MEI Chartered Energy Manager, CIBSE LCC EnMS (Low Carbon Consultant EMnS - ISO50001 to you and me) and I am currently contracted to Resource Efficient Scotland as a Technical Consultant (providing site support to Scottish SMEs).
I am also an ESOS Lead Assessor and ISO50001 Lead Auditor.
Not sure what it is worth but I have also been awarded Master-ship and Professional Membership of the European Energy Centre.
To fill my copious spare time I also work as a Commercial (Non-Domestic) Energy Assessor (NDEA) providing commercial EPCs and Section 63 assessments.
I have also qualified as a Non-Domestic Green Deal Advisor which has not proved to be of any use at all.
About Me - interests
My main technical interest is in commercial lighting - I am constantly researching and learning about the exciting and rapidly developing field of LEDs - working closely with manufacturers and designers, I am able to provide full lighting design schemes for any type of property.
Another area of interest is Renewable Energy and I am always reading about heat pumps, biomass boilers, energy storage and Solar PV to ensure I provide clients with the best, impartial but tangible information.
I am in business to save you energy and money. You will find my trading Terms and Conditions here.

Also worked on the development of tools to assess depth and impact of marine growth on offshore structures. Took my Offshore Survival course and became the offshore rep for the company working mainly on the Hutton TLP accompanying the platform from construction base at Nigg out to final placement in the North Sea. Worked with the dive crews to ensure accurate mapping of the marine growth on this new type of structure.

Recruited by Cebo International bv to develop landfill capping and lining using natural clay products covering Scotland & Ireland until made I was made redundant (along with many of my colleagues - where are you all now I wonder?) in late 1990.
I was one of the longest serving Energy Consultants with the Carbon Trust having also provided consultancy for the preceding scheme Action Energy. I have well over 100 clients for the Carbon Trust and have completed more than 200 site surveys for this client base over the years. I am on the Loans Verification team and the Accreditation panel. I have also taken two new Consultants through the Mentoring scheme to full accreditation status. Sadly the service has now run its course - we shall have to see what the new RESASS which replaces it has to offer.
