Energy Firm Picks Warwick Science Park as Midlands Base


An energy firm which helps businesses to reduce its carbon footprints has stepped into the Midlands and is looking to expand further.

Asset and energy management firm Smart Carbon Control, has taken premises at the University of Warwick Science Park’s Blythe Valley Innovation Centre near Solihull.

The firm supplies remote monitoring and energy control solutions to reduce businesses carbon footprints and costs, and since launching in 1998 has built a strong client roster which includes data centre firm Telecity Group UK and Barclays PLC.

Sales director, David Myers, said: “Having a presence in the Midlands allows us to centralise and share the services we have to offer.

“Over the last 12 months we have invested heavily in expanding our technical resources, and over the next year we are aiming to roll out these developments into nine countries.

“The company has doubled its revenue in 2013 from 2012 and is set to double again in 2014.

“It’s an exciting time for the company as there is such a strong focus on the energy market, which is leading to our products receiving a lot of attention.

 “What sets us apart from competitors is our tailor-made service which enables us to design and build a solution around our clients’ requirements – as opposed to off-the-shelf products.”

Smart Carbon Control, which employs 14 people and has its head office in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, is also looking to create new jobs at its Midlands centre.

David added: “We’re growing quickly and are looking for new talent to join us at our new Midlands base at Blythe Valley Innovation Centre.

“We’re creating web development roles and are actively on the lookout for industry experts or graduates with a natural flare of talent and knowledge of technical and in depth analytics.”

Mark Homer, from the University of Warwick Science Park’s Blythe Valley Innovation Centre, added: “Smart Carbon Control is another strong addition to the centre, which is now very close to being fully occupied.

“Smart Carbon Control is bringing new products to market which save businesses substantial amounts of money while reducing carbon footprints and has big growth plans. We wish them every success for the future.”
