About energypeople

We’re engineers, designers, managers and consultants, with practical experience of the feasibility, specification and design of electrical infrastructure projects, and hands-on experience of planning, building, operating and maintaining power businesses.

The energypeople team has over 500 years of experience of planning, designing, building, operating and maintaining electricity plant, transmission and distribution networks. We provide solutions that are trusted, cost-effective, reliable and resilient and have a proven track record of providing added-value services for public, private and donor energy sector organisations both nationally and globally.

Our Services

Our purpose is to deliver innovative engineering, management and technical solutions to public, private and donor organisations in the power sector. We pride ourselves on innovative solutions that successfully deliver every time. We offer a distinctive perspective when working with clients, helping transform and grow power sector businesses.

Design Services

Our specialist engineers have diverse experience of designing and delivering power engineering solutions from concept through to detailed design. Our designers have worked on a broad range of power projects up to 132kV in the UK and 330kV internationally, on battery storage, wind, EfW, solar, STOR, traditional thermal (coal, gas or nuclear) and load projects.

We have a strong track record of working directly for many of the DNOs and IDNOs across the UK. Many of our senior consultants are from a DNO background, so we have the capabilities and hands-on experience to support you in an owner’s engineer role as well as in asset management and network design. We have advised clients in becoming an IDNO, undertaken operations training, completed competency assessments, and reviewed their operational and design standards.

Advisory Services

In advising utilities, we recognise that customer expectations are rising as economies mature, that in the future the success of an electricity utility will increasingly be judged by its responsiveness to customers’ needs and, when problems arise, that the ‘physical’ fault is rapidly addressed and customers’ complaints are dealt with in a sensitive, appropriate manner.

In our advisory practice we have a group of consultants who provide technical, operational and management advice and services to governments and government agencies, regulators, actual and potential investors, as well as to those responsible for leading, managing and operating power sector business. Our team has experience of managing power projects funded by NGOs – including ADB, World Bank, DfID and UNDP.

Our expertise

Our aim is always to provide excellent service at the best possible cost which we achieve by recruiting and training first-class engineers who are recognised in the industry. The energypeople team brings together expert knowledge of the UK electricity industry with an understanding of global developments affecting the sector.
