Anesco team ‘masters’ in energy efficiency

Sign for websiteTwo energy efficiency experts from Anesco have taken their skills to new levels after qualifying for a masters degree in renewable energy technology and sustainability.

Victor Gutierrez and Matthew McIlwaine studied for a year to gain the qualification at the University of Reading. They will now use their knowledge to help enhance Anesco’s innovative ESCO model, which provides organisations to improve their energy efficiency without the need for upfront capital.

Reading-based Anesco works with business, local authorities, housing associations and homeowners looking to reduce their carbon emissions.

Victor, an energy efficiency analyst, and business development manager Matt are responsible for developing investment grade audit proposals. They coordinate energy audits and analyse energy modelling of client portfolios, to identify areas where savings may be made through renewable energy.

Victor commented: “I’m thrilled to have gained my masters and at Anesco I feel my qualifications can actually make a difference. It’s great being part of the ESCO team and contributing to a model that has the potential to help thousands of people, while at the same time creating a low carbon future.”

Anesco’s multi-site, multi-measure, shared saving ESCO model begins by looking at current energy usage before assessing which combination of efficiency measures could be installed to bring the greatest benefit. The model is popular with clients, ranging from local authorities and housing associations to leisure groups.

Adrian Pike, CEO of Anesco, said: “Victor and Matt have done really well. As a company we value dedication and ambition and the ongoing training and development of all our employees is really important to us. We’re very proud to have achieved Investors in People gold standard in our first round of assessment and continue to focus on recruiting and developing our highly skilled team.”
