ESTA’s Independent Energy Consultants group (IECg) has bestowed a lifetime achievement award to Swan Energy’s Managing Director, Andrew Park, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the energy efficiency and consultancy sector.

Presenting the award at ESTA’s Energy Conference on 17 October 2019, London, Jes Rutter, ESTA’s IECg Chair and MD, JRP Solutions detailed some of Andrew’s career, spanning over 45 years.

Andrew’s successful career began with graduating from the University of Salford with a BSc in Mechanical Engineering in 1970.

From then on, Andrew has had a varied and fruitful career in the Energy Industry beginning with working as a Shift Engineer for Pilkington Brothers for three years after graduation.

Following this, Andrew worked for Chloride Lorival as a Plant Engineer and FEC as a Consultant Engineer.

Andrew then went on to be the Energy Manager at Associated Dairies (ASDA) for 16 years where his fascination for the industry grew.

In 1999, Andrew established Swan Energy Limited to aid industry, commerce and the public sector with energy management services.

Andrew spotted a gap in the market for compliance service offerings and Swan Energy evolved to focus on EU ETS, CRC and ESOS compliance.

Lead by Andrew, Swan Energy has developed into a well-established trusted company which manages EU ETS at over 70 sites across the UK and Ireland and are recognised for being experts in compliance services.

Swan Energy joined ESTA in 2001 and have contributed significantly over the years at conferences, seminars and exhibitions.

Andrew has been Vice Chair of the Independent Energy Consultants Group for 3 years. During this time, he organised the 1st ever IECG event: “Energy: Changing Times” which was very successful and has led to future events being planned.
