Meet the SaveEnergy Advisors

SaveEnergy is also supported by our advisors and society secretary:

He tries to combine those two experiences to helping people and organisations understand climate change and how consumer choice can reduce our impact. He believes in the power of the question and that consumers can change business practice through their demands for change.
