Green Net Zero
Women in Coolings:
I’ve always been passionate about low-carbon technologies and the wider sustainability landscape. Following graduating with a Mechanical Engineering degree in 2007, I embarked on a career in industrial and process cooling. During this time I gained an understanding of evaporative and refrigerant products and worked on some sizeable projects.
My interest in low carbon heating and cooling solutions took hold in 2013 after joining Daikin Air Conditioning. Here I supported mechanical building service consultants with their mechanical designs. It was during this time that I saw the benefits of heat recovery, and heat pump technology, using it to improve energy efficiency.
In 2017, following a 3-year spell working in Data Centre Cooling, I took a role at Mitsubishi Electric Living Environmental Systems, working on commercial applications requiring the replacement of central plant equipment. During my time there, I saw the market shift towards an electric economy, using heat pump solutions to replace fossil fuels. In 2019, I moved into the key accounts team, supporting end-users directly with their HVAC strategies, and this was where I realised the need for supporting these clients with their net-zero plans, in particular low carbon heating.
Wanting to focus purely on supporting the UK’s Net Zero Strategy for heat and buildings, I felt I needed to make a major change, I February 2022 I founded Green Net Zero with the directors of Frankland Group. This company has been set-up to purely focus on the decarbonising of our clients existing commercial and industrial buildings, using renewable and low carbon technologies. Heat pumps form a major part of our offering.
I’m excited about making a positive difference to my clients, as well as playing a part in tackling climate change.
