Lancashire-based renewable energy company takes on new manager (trade - construction)

Lancashire renewable energy company, BHE Renewables, has appointed a Renewable Energy Manager.

Andy Edwards, 37, will drive forward the company’s renewable energy services and products for commercial and domestic customers locally, regionally and nationally.

The company, based at Wilkinson House on Radcliffe Road, in Bolton, Lancashire, works with a wide range of commercial customers including house builders, builders, social housing associations, and owner managed businesses to supply and install a variety of renewable energy equipment, including air and ground source heat pumps, solar panels, solar thermal, combined heating and power (CHP) units, and mini wind units.

Andy, who lives in Southport, in Merseyside, has had many years’ experience in a variety of roles involving renewable energy.

Andy worked on the Eden Project in Cornwall, the Aqua Cube Aquatics Centre for the Beijing Olympics, the Echo Arena in Liverpool and many others.

Andy has also worked on numerous renewable energy installations for social housing projects and commercial properties including farms, warehouses and solar farms.

Andy will be responsible for all incoming enquiries as well as carrying out surveys and managing a dedicated team of qualified installers.

Andy said: “The biggest challenge facing us and the renewable energy sector is to get out to both the domestic and commercial markets that solar PV is still a very sound investment despite all the media attention around the Government’s recent changes to the feed-in tariffs.

“The other message is that solar PV is currently the most effective and affordable way for a whole range of organisations and businesses to reduce their carbon emissions and minimise their exposure to the current and future levels of carbon tax.

“CHP and solar thermal are also going to provide us and the sector with lots of opportunities in the near future, too,” he added.

He added: “The benefits of solar panels for commercial organisations are even greater than for domestic customers. A typical investment of £85,000 can produce income and savings of more than £460,000 over 25 years!

“There are even grants available, too, to pay up to 100% of the initial cost, so it’s a no brainer for some commercial organisations to invest in solar panels.”

Paul Wilkinson, Director of BHE Renewables, said: “We have a talented team of engineers within our renewable division. Andy’s extensive experience and knowledge of the renewable energy sector will add to the team’s skills and expertise and help drive forward our business further.”
