Bath University/Verco Public I-SEE Lecture: Energy efficiency is a no brainer – so why is it not happening?

Tue 21 Feb 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm


I-SEE Seminar -

Energy efficiency is a no brainer – so why is it not happening?

Andrew Todd, Director and Head of Energy and Resource Management at Verco Limited

Abstract: Energy efficiency has been a key part of the UK’s strategy to meet our greenhouse gas commitments as well as supporting the government’s approach to tackle the well-publicised “energy trilemma”. However, the uptake of energy efficiency whilst on an improving trend, represents a fraction of the market potential, with a further £4bn of saving still on offer. I will discuss the types of opportunities that exist drawing on real life examples from breweries to commercial real estate. I will then explore the barriers that prevent these savings being realised. Finally I will give my view on some of the current trends in energy efficiency and where this could take us.

Andrew Todd is a Director and Head of Energy and Resource Management at Verco. He is a Chartered Energy Manager with the Energy Institute and a Chemical Engineering graduate of the University of Bath. For the past 9 years Andrew has focussed on delivering energy and resource efficiency programmes for large multisite companies such as SABMiller, Dairy Crest, Saint Gobain, Next and Diageo. Andrew has spent years at manufacturing sites leading “deep dive” energy and water reduction audits around the world and has overseen the design, specification and implementation of automatic metering systems and energy management software at more than 100 sites. Andrew also manages a team of engineers who have recently completed hundreds of energy surveys across the whole UK non-domestic building stock for a leading piece of government energy efficiency research.
