Why Neutral Home?
A different approach

At the core of our business is the data we collect from the properties we transform.  From there comes our approach to energy efficiency and decarbonisation, which is as an integrator of technology and systems.  Our methodology ensures optimised business cases for energy efficiency, net zero carbon and associated co-benefits.

We are technology agnostic and commercially impartial, bringing expertise in all areas, from the basics of building insulation to the integration of on-site renewables generation, power storage and demand management.

Housing stock needs to be more energy efficient

For social landlords Net Zero means tackling energy efficiency through a whole building approach.  Improving building fabric and integrating new technologies can drive down carbon emissions, offering residents warm homes with affordable energy.

The clock is ticking on decarbonisation goals.  We work with HAs to assess their portfolios and identify key projects for pilot and rollout at scale.

How we do it
Energy driven data

At the heart of our approach is the data. We believe that ‘you can’t manage what you don’t measure’. By gathering real time data on properties and how people live in them, we design systems which will deliver energy efficiency and financial results.

Data puts the social housing landlord in the driving seat:

• Enabling the necessary retrofit programme to achieve EPC targets

• Building and measuring performance of the business case for decarbonisation

• Linking to action on energy poverty and rent arrears

The power of data drives the energy solution

Gary has a background in Communications Engineering honed via 10 years in the Royal Navy, where he was responsible for the operational readiness of ship and shore-based radio & radar systems. From 2012-15 Gary worked in the USA, developing engineering and commercial partnerships for Energy Demand Response programmes in the commercial and residential sectors. 

Returning to the UK he founded Envisij, after noticing that use of energy management systems requires a high degree of technical understanding. Envisijtherefore set off on a path of 'Energy Simply Managed', enabling wide-spread adoption by non-technical consumers. This developed the technology which now forms the ‘energy brain’ of Neutral Home.
