Chippenham-based Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS) provider SMARTech energy, has announced Jamie Standfield as Head of Sales and Marketing to the company’s team.
This appointment comes as the company looks to build its sales presence across the UK to support growth plans in 2023 and beyond.
Jamie brings an enviable industry reputation built over three decades of experience within the engineering and manufacturing sectors. This level of industry process and understanding will be pivotal in helping to drive the company’s business development strategy forward.
Sustainable energy efficient solutions
He said “This is an exciting time to be joining an energy management and reduction company and this role inspires my interest in renewable and sustainable technologies”.
“Added to this, that the UK industry is facing continuing pressures from soaring energy costs, I’m eager to be able to help identify opportunities where SMARTech energy can deliver sustainable energy efficient solutions, which not only benefit the financial aspects of a company, but the environmental Net Zero targets too”.
Founder and Managing Director of SMARTech energy, Stuart Pearce said “Jamie’s in-depth engineering knowledge, technical insight and leadership management will help position the company for substantial sales growth with our exciting EEaaS programme and is a welcome choice to advance the company”.
Guaranteed energy reduction
SMARTech energy is an award-winning energy management and reduction specialist. The team partners with medium to large businesses and organisations to reduce their energy usage and carbon footprint through its Energy Efficiency as a Service programme.
They do this by reducing a site’s total energy consumption through bespoke energy management strategies and technologies which optimise the performance and operating conditions of a site.
This, combined with full energy consultancy, reporting and measured and guaranteed savings, is helping businesses and organisations to overcome the financial and logistical barriers of reducing energy consumption, costs and carbon.
A volatile energy market
The volatility of the energy market means organisations must be more aware of their energy usage and look for solutions which reduce their dependency on energy from external sources and ultimately, endeavour to become as self-sustainable as possible.
Jamie said “Reducing a site’s total energy consumption is what really lowers a business’s exposure to a volatile energy market and I’m passionate about helping customers to find the right solution to reduce emissions, improve efficiency and to save costs”.
Huge value to both the company and our customers
Stuart continues “We are thrilled to have Jamie join the team. His understanding of the issues facing UK industry will enable him to drive the benefits and enormous value of the EEaaS offering”.
We are already working in the hotel and education sectors and we are looking to increase our work with large manufacturing companies across the country, where energy efficiency can directly impact their bottom line. We know we can achieve savings for them – and for the planet, within a few short months.”
