The new white paper from Acre Resources, the specialist environment and sustainability recruitment firm, looks at the profoundly changing role and skill-set of the Energy Manager. This position is evolving into someone who is comfortable in the board room as well as the boiler room, with technical and commercial knowledge – and the increasing ability to impact on margins and revenues.
Commentary from high-profile industry experts from BT, Marks and Spencer, Siemens and Johnson Controls:
Written by Jim Woods, Non-Executive Director at Acre Resources, and with expert contributions from: Mervyn Bowden (Head of Energy Management, Marks & Spencer); Richard Tarboton (Director of Energy and Carbon, BT); Stephen Barker (Head of Energy Efficiency, Siemens Industry Sector UK); and Trevor Seddon (Director of Energy Consulting, Johnson Controls) – the paper looks at how companies in a stagnant economy are increasingly turning to efficiency as a way to increase profit – impacting the scope and function of their energy teams.
BT case study: a team that delivered a £35m gross energy reduction over the first two years of their programme:
Included in the paper is a case study of BT, whose energy team delivered a £35m gross energy reduction over the first two years of their programme since hiring a Director for Energy and Carbon (Richard Tarboton, placed by Acre Resources) in 2008. BT estimate that they could save £60m in 5-10 years, and that its energy management advances could generate a new revenue stream for the company in third-party energy management services - a market estimated to be worth £6bn in the UK.
