Stephen Harangozo

Ex-British Antarctic Survey scientist (climate change) and elected councillor Steve Harangozo provides a public sector-facing energy assessment service supplying Display Energy Certificates (DECs) via his business Energy Saving Networks. Having qualified through City and Guilds, Steve uses his DEC training and science background to also provide quality advice on energy saving and micro renewable energy, particularly focussing on the schools sector. Current projects include a new wind turbine and an energy saving club for local schools utilising sophisticated energy monitors produced by a Cambridge hi-tech company.  Steve will also soon be able to supply Energy Performance Certificates (Level 4) both for existing and planned new buildings. He also has considerable practical knowledge of community level climate change mitigation initiatives gained through his council work. This work has contributed to a highly successful community partnership involving 18 villages with energy-saving initiatives in South Cambridgeshire. Steve’s aim once he qualified as an energy assessor was to help smooth the path towards energy saving for schools and other public organizations not just for its own sake but also to help improve understanding of the pressing environmental issues of our day. His overall ethos is to assist public organizations to reduce their carbon emissions more easily both by sharing his knowledge and experience and by supporting them in doing things in ways that suit them best. This approach has been partly informed by Steve’s long voluntary service, including chairing a local environmental group, as well as wanting to share his practical energy saving knowledge and, more generally, on climate change gained through his long science career.
