Ylem Energy Ltd. the leading flexible energy generation and storage specialist, has announced a new appointment which is set to reinforce the firm’s technical expertise and support the rising demand for on-site generation and the necessary specialist maintenance services subsequently required. Andrew Taylor joins Ylem as Head of Business Development O&M.

Andrew previously worked for CooperÖstlund Ltd. and prior to that as Head of Sustainability at Keepmoat, where he led a tri-partite consortium, including SSE and Wilmott Dixon, to successfully secure an eight-year ECO & Green Deal Scheme for the Leeds City Region, across nine Local Authorities.

Ian Gadsby, Ylem Managing Director, said: “This is an important appointment which has been made to help Ylem develop and deliver solutions which improve resilience, reduce costs and help businesses on their journey towards net zero.”

“Andrew has more than 15 years’ experience in the renewable energy sector, across both the public and private sectors, securing projects from large-scale solar PV farms through to multi-technology frameworks and has advised government, playing an active role in shaping energy policy. I am delighted to welcome him to the team.”

Andrew commented: “Ylem has built a reputation for world-class support, offering innovative solutions in a dynamic market that guarantee lower business electricity bills through on-site generation and storage technologies.”

“With more than three decades’ experience in building, owning and operating smart generation systems, operation and maintenance model is at the heart of Ylem’s proposition and in the months ahead I will be focused on ensuring the support of existing energy assets is easy for all system owners.”

This appointment follows news of the launch of Ylem’s updated Dynamic Power Purchase Agreement (DPPA), a unique solution that guarantees lower business electricity bills for ten years with fully funded on-site generation systems. Set to support the UK’s legally binding targets for tackling climate change and decarbonising the grid, DPPA is centred around the implementation of asset-based technologies such as gas generation, renewables and battery storage systems and controls.
