A chartered chemical engineer with 30 years' experience of industrial energy and resource efficiency project delivery

Ewan retired recently as a Technical Director in Jacobs’ Sustainable Solutions Business Unit where he had responsibility for maintaining the company’s capability in industrial energy efficiency across the business. He also contributed to the company’s resource efficiency projects and in the past has been the technical lead for NISP (National Industrial Symbiosis Programme) in North West England, an accredited consultant with both the Carbon Trust (CT) and Manufacturing Institute (MAS) and a member of the Envirowise and enWorks resource efficiency panels.
His project experience includes implementation of energy management systems and processes, process investigation and troubleshooting, feasibility studies for CHP systems and energy networks, strategic energy and carbon management planning and training across a wide range of industries from SMEs to multinationals.
