Guildford employees


The Guildford office is home to our team of 20 innovative problem solvers and support staff. The work we do helps our clients tackle some of the environmental challenges facing the energy sector and includes strategic power system planning studies, techno-economic project evaluations and power-systems innovation projects.

The office is on the Surrey Research Park, which is owned, funded and developed by the University of Surrey. The buildings are set in large landscaped areas which provide a serene and tranquil backdrop for over 140 companies. These companies are engaged in a broad spectrum of consultancy, research, development and design activities in areas such as engineering, technology, pharmaceuticals and social science.

Visit the Surrey Research Park website for more information.

Staff at the office organise a summer and Christmas event, and take part in sports events like charity runs. Some people from the office have attended the annual Low Carbon Networks & Innovation conference, giving them the opportunity to network with fellow consultants across the industry.
