A day in the life of… Kam, Energy Spot Trader
Some people in Ecotricity have to keep an eye on the energy we’ve got 24 hours a day. While we make a lot of the energy we supply to our customers, we also have to buy some from the energy market – and that means keeping tabs on what we’ve got and what we need every half an hour of every day! That’s where Kam comes in …
As Britain’s greenest energy company, we’re on a mission to create a greener Britain. That’s why we harness our customers’ bills to build and maintain our fleet of windmills and sunmills, providing much needed green energy to the grid.
Having a Smart meter installed won’t instantly save you money – but if you’re savvy, and make use of the features of having a Smart meter, you could soon start saving money on your energy bills.
At Ecotricity, we understand how important it is to teach young people about the environment and how to care for it. We regularly attend festivals where our stands have loads of great stuff to inspire the younger generation. And our Principal Ecologist, Simon Pickering, frequently visits schools to engage children with all things green. It’s promoting sustainability at grass roots – a mission shared by our partners at the Field Studies Council (FSC) through their scholarship program.
Our homes use more energy now than ever before, in fact around 37 percent more than they did in 1980. But this number would be a lot higher if it weren’t for advancements in technology that have provided many energy efficiency solutions.
We’re green pioneers, on a mission to create a greener Britain, and we do a lot to promote and inform people about the sustainability message. We have some great partners who also deliver that message and it’s important that they themselves lead by example. The Field Studies Council (FSC) have taken big steps to achieving this goal, as we found out.
