Phil Evans CV April 2012

  1. 1. Phil EvansSummaryI have twenty years experience in a wide range of energy andenvironmental management consultancy projects, having heldpositions with Consulting Engineers, Local Authorities, privatesector energy consultants, Government-funded organisations and infull-time energy management roles. I have been based in the UKthroughout my career, but I have worked on energy-related projectsin Europe and Asia.I am confident in my abilities and have an approachable andtrustworthy manner that allows me to deal with projects andproblems with clarity and calmness. I can apply my energy andenvironmental skills to any situation and have always found ways toimprove performance and/or reduce costs; whether I find myself ina massive Beijing tyre manufacturer or a hotel in central London.As a committed and passionate environmentalist; it is very important to me that I conduct myselfin a professional manner and demonstrate high ethical standards. I am known for my honestyand desire to present the best solutions for all clients as well as the environment. I am acompetitive person and it is very important to me that I deliver meaningful, practical solutionsthat make sense and are in line with the four pillars of sustainability (economic, environmental,social and cultural).Specialties  ISO50001 Implementation  Strategic Energy Management  Strategic Environmental Management  Solution Identification/Implementation  Project ManagementExperienceManaging Director of Green Bridge11th July 2011 - presentI have brought my skills and experience to bear on identifying and delivering energy efficiency-driven cost saving solutions. To enable me to use a verifiable framework to deliver this work Ihave become an ISO50001 Internal Auditor through BSi. My preference is to help organisationsprioritise their energy saving initiatives rather than audit their performance, but the auditorcourse has allowed me to become conversant with exactly what an auditor would look for, whichmeans accreditation and ongoing compliance is assured.A selection of the work undertaken since starting Green Bridge is shown below:Energy Performance in Luxury Residential Development – I was commissioned to audit adevelopment of 21 luxury flats (price range between £4M and £6.5M) to identify efficiency,renewable and low carbon opportunities to save money, energy and carbon for the residents. Iam in discussions for Phase , which will be to implement the prioritised recommendations.
  2. 2. Phil EvansEnergy Performance of Buildings Directive Tracking – Working for a Fund Manager with a UK-wideportfolio, I collated existing Energy Performance Certificates and Air Conditioning Inspections.The need for EPCs etc was prioritised and an action plan developed to produce new or, renewexisting certificates. Buildings with poor ratings are being targeted for energy efficiencyimprovements and retrofitting of energy saving technologies to enhance the overall energyperformance of the building. It is vital that my client can offer high quality rentablespace/buildings and EPCs are now seen as one of the differentiators to achieve that.ISo50001 Energy Management System Gap Analysis – I reviewed the existing environmental andcarbon management practices of a large rail transportation organisation and assessed the workinvolved to move into an ISo50001 framework.High-end Car Manufacturer EU Emissions Trading Scheme Procedural Audits – I undertook a seriesof audits of the in-house practices for data collection, collation and presentation to identify timeand labour-saving improvements.Prestige High Street Retailer Air Conditioning Inspections – As an accredited ACI, I have conducteda number of inspections and produced the associated reports to ensure that my client iscompliant with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, thereby avoiding fines andsignificant negative publicity that would damage its image as a proponent of sustainability.Head of Energy and Environmental Services at Westway Services LtdMarch 2010 – June 2011I developed a range of energy and environmental services to complement and enhance the coreengineering and maintenance skills of Westway. These services were designed primarily tofacilitate growth of the core business.I was Director of a £1,500,000 project to install ~700 wireless energy management systems,overseeing a team including ~50 installation engineers. The calculated payback on this projectwas less than two years.I secured a contract to produce air conditioning inspection reports for a prestigious high streetretailer. The agreement was that Westway would be one of two companies responsible forimplementing energy saving improvements. The conservative estimation of potentialimprovements was £2,500,000 across the entire estate. The estimated payback on theinvestment was between one and two years.Associate Director Energy Management & Engineering at CBREFebruary 2008 - March 2010I worked within the Building Consultancy Group of CBRE and my remit was to develop a newenergy-focused service line. The aim was to ensure our clients were compliant with energy andenvironmental legislation; to help them achieve their own corporate commitments and controltheir costs, consumption and carbon emissions. I exceeded my financial targets and took controlof energy engineering services for the whole of the UK, even though it had been previously beenconsidered to have minimal profit potential. This move increased the fee earning potential toover £1M p.a.I demonstrated that the need for good energy management is more important than ever as it is ameans to control costs as well as ensuring compliance with the increasing amount of
  3. 3. Phil Evansenvironmental legislation. The model I developed is still being used as a business differentiator ina market that continues to increase in competitiveness.Senior Energy Manager at EMCOR Facilities ServicesOctober 2006 - February 2008I provided a full range of energy management services and support to the European OperationsEnergy Manager on our GSK Account. I was identified as a candidate for the EMCOR SeniorManagement “Talent Programme” which meant additional training and exposure to a widerrange of business management functions, such as business development, accounting andfinance, leadership skills, project management etc.The Director of Energy recognised my commercial skills and urged me to focus my attention onbusiness development and management, as he believed they were where my main strengthswere. I produced a business development plan for submission by the Director of Energy to theCEO to justify the expansion of the existing energy business through organic growth, strategicpartnerships and acquisition. This meant considerable market research into the current energymarket, including competitor analysis, assessing changing customer needs/priorities andexpressing this information using PESTLE and SWOT analysis, amongst others.This research confirmed my belief that an organisation that has engineering and technicalcapabilities as their core business is ideally positioned to put energy at the heart of the business,thereby demonstrating a clear business differentiator from its competitors.Energy & Environmental Manager at Imperial College LondonJuly 2003 - October 2006I developed energy and environmental strategies and policies to ensure the College wascompliant with legislation and the requirements of students, academics and estates staff. I wasresponsible for the development and delivery of the College-wide awareness campaign, whichultimately led to me being receiving the ‘Hero of the Year’ Award – something never achieved byan estates staff member before.I was responsible for the £22M energy budget, which was spent across eight campuses, whichcomprised eight campuses, ~350 buildings, 500,000sqm of floor space. It is one of the largestacademic institutions in the UK with 12,000 students and 6,000 staff.I coordinated the efforts of the outsourced Utility Bureau Service Provider and was theappointed ‘Responsible Person’ for the South Kensington Campus Combined Heat and Powerplant and our involvement with the CHPQA.During my time at Imperial, I identified over £2,500,000 of energy-related savings, with a further£5,000,000 ongoing savings from proposed improvements to refurbishments and new buildprojects.Senior Energy Consultant at Johnson Controls LimitedSeptember 2001 - July 2003I managed energy efficiency-related projects for JCLs extensive client base and developing newbusiness.
