George is a local energy analyst who plays a key role in supporting Regen’s community energy work. As part of his role, George supports Northern Powergrid with its Community Energy Engagement Programme. This involves running both online and in-person events, collating and writing quarterly newsletters and supporting the delivery of the Northern Powergrid’s Net Zero Community Energy fund.
George plays a significant role in the Devon Community Energy Network, supporting local community energy organisations to develop their expertise, share knowledge and collaborate. This has involved organising the annual Spring Gathering, a two-day, open space event in Dartington, Devon, that helps build a community of practitioners who want to take practical action to reduce emissions and support their community.
Before joining Regen, George studied sustainability at the University of Leeds, and worked at a start-up energy supplier and a social housing provider.
