Casey Cole - Managing Director - Guru Systems
  • Casey ColeManaging Director

    Having worked for more than 15 years in low-carbon energy, Casey Cole has in-depth experience of making sustainability work in practice: technically, commercially and legally.

    He co-founded Guru Systems in 2012 in response to the lack of smart metering and monitoring systems for decentralised energy networks. He and the rest of the Guru team are passionate champions of the sector, searching out the barriers to progress and overcoming them with practical technology that’s easy to use.

    Casey is a seasoned speaker and is active across the sector, working with the government, large housing providers, ESCOs and developers to make heat networks and other onsite energy systems more sustainable and energy efficient.

    In November 2015, Casey was named Chair of the Board at Heat Trust, the customer protection scheme that sets out a common standard of quality and protection for the supply of heat on onsite energy networks. The Trust gives confidence to customers living in homes supplied by the schemes and provides a benchmark for best practice.
