Having worked for nearly 20 years in low-carbon energy, Casey Cole has in-depth experience of making sustainability work in practice: technically, commercially and legally.
Casey co-founded Guru Systems in 2012 to improve the efficiency and financial performance of heat networks using Internet of Things technology. He and the rest of the Guru team are passionate champions of the sector, searching out the barriers to progress and overcoming them with cutting-edge technology that’s easy to use.
Alongside his work at Guru Systems, in 2015 Casey was invited to chair the board of Heat Trust, the stakeholder-led customer protection scheme for the growing heat network sector.
Nicky joined Guru in 2019 having previously worked in the Heat Networks Policy Team at BEIS, and before that, the Heat Networks Delivery Unit at DECC where she led the design of the scheme and administered funding rounds.
During her time at BEIS, Nicky was seconded to the Competition and Markets Authority, providing sector expertise to the team of economists and lawyers, shaping the findings of the Heat Networks Market Study.
Prior to her time at DECC and BEIS, Nicky worked at the Combined Heat and Power Association (now the Association for Decentralised Energy) where she was active in the initiation of the ADE/CIBSE Code of Practice and the Heat Customer Protection Scheme, which later became Heat Trust.
