Ellie spent four years at Newcastle University where she studied a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering with an interest in the sustainability aspects of the course. As a Graduate Engineer she is currently working as part of the design team, helping to achieve cost saving solutions and deliver optimised heat networks for new build projects. Some of the work also involves going on site and carrying out acceptance testing, where she identifies dwelling level performance issues and ensures that the design criteria has been achieved. Ellie joined FairHeat with a keen interest in working within the sustainability sector and is excited by the opportunity to be involved in a relatively new industry that is rapidly expanding. She really enjoys being part of a team that aim to deliver innovative solutions along with the challenges this presents. With lots of responsibility given from the start over a diverse range of projects, she has already gained a good understanding of all areas of heat networks from design through to delivery.
