I am graduate of the UCC Civil Engineering department with over 10 years experience working as a commercial & industrial energy efficiency and LEAN manufacturing consultant. I hold a six sigma green belt in LEAN manufacturing principals which I apply to my operations efficiency work. I have also worked as an Agreements Support Manager with SEAI, where I have mentored ten of the largest energy users in Ireland in the implementation of the IS393, EN16001 and most recently ISO50001 energy management system standards. I work closely with industrial partners to develop intelligent analytics solutions to optimise their energy systems.
