Martyn Ramsden, MD - Global Insulation

I have known and worked with Peter Dolby since 2005 and during this period Peter has always shown the utmost professionalism towards my company. His knowledge of the private sector has been invaluable for Global Insulation and has helped develop areas of business through projects and other local energy saving initiatives.

Peter’s knowledge of the energy industry has also proven useful for a company the size of Global Insulation as he has been able to predict current and possible future trends with regards funding which has enabled our company to monitor the cash flow and react where necessary.


Mark Hooton, Energy Manager - Wakefield MDC

I have known and worked with Peter Dolby since 2001 and throughout this time Peter has shown nothing but total commitment to the home insulation projects we have worked in partnership to deliver. His professionalism and attitude to the task at hand has meant that our projects have always delivered and in some cases exceeded the Council's expectations. I very much look forward to working with Peter and Act on Carbon in the very near future.
