Wattwatchers is part of the Energy Saving Networks Group, specialising in open, real-time observation and control technologies for power demand networks.
Founded in 2007, we’ve researched all aspects of the energy market and how it does (or doesn’t) touch our daily lives. Based on what we’ve learned, we’ve developed technologies that underpin the Energy Information Age and enable the customer-side to benefit from its role in an efficient and equitable Smart Grid.
Our vision is an energy conscious society, powered by information age tools.
Our role in this is to create systems to manage and control energy that are uncomplicated, unwired and uncostly:
- To use existing infrastructures to form networks.
- To engage the networks to share and compare data, solutions and services.
- To encourage these networks to be available for grid-scale efficiencies.
Our core team – supported by expert advisers – provides a unique 360 degree view of the rapidly changing energy sector from industry, consumer engagement, behavioural, technology and sustainability perspectives.
Christopher Bean: Founded the company and runs the business side of things. Distinguished research, marketing and CRM career at CEO level. Will be happy when everyone has choice and control over their everyday energy use, and can participate in the market. This will push the carbon curve down.
Jon Keeble: A background of serial development in high value-add products, systems, networks. Jon’s belief in ‘the internet of things’ leads the company to produce enabling technologies that are open, connectable, grid-scale. If we hear him say one more time ‘it’s all about the network’ we’ll go bananas.
Murray Hogarth: Sustainability leader, strategy consultant, investigative journalist, speaker and author. You name it, he understands what’s needed to get there. Murray heads strategic development of the many forms of community ‘energy saving networks’ that our technology enables. Oh, he blogs and tweets as well.
Paul Wiszniak: A career in electronics manufacturing, advanced metrology, load control manufacturing, and energy auditing fieldwork keeps the company firmly grounded in industry applications and principles. Paul heads business development of products and services for energy users and the industry services sector.
Advisers to the board
