Ylem Energy Appoints Business Development Director
Flexible energy generation specialist, Ylem Energy Ltd, has appointed Jon Feingold – former commercial director of Gazprom Energy – to head up the Salford-based company’s business development activities.
Jon Feingold’s arrival as business development director, comes at a time when Ylem Energy is rolling out an ambitious programme of expansion. This includes further development of its own portfolio of natural-gas-fuelled flexible generation plants, large-scale battery energy storage systems and helping industrial and commercial clients to optimise their sites’ energy systems.
For more than thirty years, Ylem Energy has been at the forefront of independent power generation and helped pioneer the generation of electricity from landfill and anaerobic digestion gases. Whilst still very-much active in these sectors, the company’s move into flexible generation has been a logical step and one that has enabled it to further utilise its enviable skill set to provide competitive advantages that benefit its clients.
Ian Gadsby, Ylem Energy’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jon into the team at such an important time in our company’s growth. His impressive track record, insight and experience gained from developing businesses in the UK energy sector will be a great asset to our company’s plans.”
“This is perfectly demonstrated by him having been a founder of Pennine Natural Gas Ltd, a company that quickly established itself as the UK’s largest independent supplier of business gas. It was subsequently acquired by the Russian energy giant Gazprom, where it continued to grow and become one of the largest suppliers of gas in the UK.”
Jon Feingold, Ylem Energy’s new business development director, commented: “I am really pleased to be joining Ylem Energy. The team has exciting plans for growing their already-impressive business. The company’s advanced flexible generation and storage technologies, coupled with an unrivalled engineering and commercial capability will undoubtedly play an ever-increasing role in helping the UK’s grid to decentralise and encourage the integration of more renewable energy generation capacity.”
