Andy Stanton

Andy Stanton, CEng MCIBSE Infrastructure & Sustainability Manager Transport for London – Facilities Operations will join our panel of experts at the upcoming “Energy Performance Contracting” evening event on 16th July. Energy performance contracting is becoming an increasingly recognised solution to the challenges faced by public and private sector organisations in reducing their energy costs and achieving carbon targets. Moreover, these mechanisms introduce the necessary expertise, resource and capital funding by external means, while guaranteeing energy savings across a given period of time.

With the establishment of the RE:FIT framework in 2010, over 440 public sector buildings across 31 of the 33 London Boroughs, 25 NHS Organisations and 141 other organisations have been retrofitted under numerous Energy Performance Contracts.

However, these tools involve inherent mismatched incentives from the clients, to the contractors as well as incumbent facilities managers. The contracts are extremely complex for relatively low capital values and carry high risk for the contract providers.

Our panel will discuss the merits and opportunities of Energy Performance Contracts against the challenges they pose and their potential use as mechanisms for organisations to mitigate their own risk.

Andy is Infrastructure & Sustainability Manager  at Transport for London, where he heads a team responsible for technical infrastructure and the sustainability and environmental performance of TfL’s office portfolio.

His team has delivered year on year improvements in energy, water & recycling efficiency achieving Carbon Trust Standard accreditation in January 2010, and recognition in the CIBSE Building Performance Awards for six consecutive years, for energy efficiency, Building Operation and for work on occupant engagement. Their work also features in key CIBSE publications.

Key achievements include installation of the largest fuel cell CHP in a UK building, retrofitting energy efficiency and renewables to existing buildings and delivering BREEAM Excellent refurbishments.

His introduction to energy performance contracts started in the late 1990s with projects in the London Borough of Ealing and he later played a key role in developing London’s RE:FIT energy efficiency retrofit programme, running the pilot at 22 TfL buildings in 2009/10 which delivered savings of around 15% or £0.5M per year on the energy budget. He was also involved in the trial of energy performance contracts for the commercial sector undertaken by the Better Buildings Partnership.

Andy is a chartered building services engineer and CIBSE Low Carbon Consultant and was the ESTA Energy Manager of the Year 2009/10. He is a member of the Energy Institute and lectures on sustainability, and represents TfL on the board of the Better Buildings Partnership. He has been with TfL for fifteen years and has worked and studied in France and the UK, specialising in energy efficiency and sustainability, both in the private and public sector.
