Job Title: Innovation and optimisation manager
Company: Wessex Water
A civil engineer who currently spends his time trying to prove that water and electricity do mix! Having spent 9 years working for a process contractor delivering projects in the UK and Europe, John joined Wessex Water in 2008 with a remit to formulate and deliver a programme of energy and cost-savings to the business. To date, the programme has realised significant energy and optimisation benefits; however, given the unpredictable nature of energy markets it will be increasingly important to utilise both technical solutions and behavioural methods in order to deliver long-term, sustainable, operational efficiencies.
