Sustainability at Harper Adams – Paul is Energy Manager of the Year
Paul Moran, estates and facilities manager at Harper Adams University College, has been crowned Energy Manager of the Year at The Energy Institute's Environment and Energy Awards 2011. The results were announced at the NEMEX Gala dinner, held during the Sustainability Live Conference and Exhibition in Birmingham.
Paul, 39, was among six people to reach the finals, sponsored by the Energy Services and Technology Association, and beat off competition from Marks & Spencer, Asda, The University of Leicester, Knauf Insulation and Schneider Electrics Ltd.
Paul, who has been the estates and facilities manager at Harper Adams in Shropshire since 2003, said: "To receive this award against such stiff competition is a real honour. I am proud of our achievements and pleased that the judges have recognised them in this award."
The award acknowledges the achievements of energy managers who have used a range of methods to lower energy consumption in the work place and to educate staff to engage in these practices.
Paul has overseen an expansion of the total campus area by 40 per cent and has driven the introduction of a range of energy saving and carbon reduction measures. These have culminated this year with the building of a 500kW anaerobic digestion plant which will convert food and farm waste into heat and power.
He added: "In my eight years here I have always aimed to develop a sustainable campus. Getting the AD plant up and running has been the culmination of all the work that has gone before. This is, by far, the biggest project, and has the potential to take us far beyond carbon neutral: we expect to offset our emissions more than three times over."
Paul was invited make presentations to a judging panel in London in March and he has already received a number of requests to present his work to organisations throughout the country as a result of his involvement in this process. He also gave a presentation during the Sustainability Live Conference and Exhibition. More locally he recently presented to Newport Civic Society on Harper's environmental work and the new AD plant.
