What’s it all about?

It’s great to hear about start-ups, and those journeys, but we all know scale is what we want, it’s not easy, but you can have more impact and do more ‘good’ when you have scale. I’ve seen Anesco grow over the last ten years and make a real impact in the deployment of solar and energy efficiency in particular. It was great to have time to speak to the (relatively) new CEO Mark Futyan about the company culture, growth and plans for the future, as well has his thoughts on the path to Net Zero.

About Mark Futyan: 

Mark Futyan is CEO of Anesco, a renewable energy business focused on solar PV, battery storage and energy efficiency. He is committed to championing the low carbon agenda and believes that Anesco have a key role to play in enabling investment in low carbon infrastructure. Since being appointed as CEO in February 2020, Mark has re-focused the organisation on its core services offering, established a new market optimisation business line and overseen a change in ownership. Prior to Anesco, Mark worked for Centrica, Interconnector UK, Booz Allen and Air Products. Mark held a number of executive roles at Centrica, which included running the international power generation and storage portfolio, advising the CEO and optimising the 7,000 strong UK residential services team. He holds a Chemical Engineering degree from Cambridge and an MBA from Columbia Business School. Mark is married with three children and enjoys cycling and mountaineering.

About Anesco:

Anesco is a market leader in renewable energy, managing the development, design, construction, maintenance and market optimisation of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. The company has constructed more than 100 solar farms, while its O&M service is monitoring more than 24,000 sites. Anesco was the first company in the UK to achieve subsidy-free solar; first to introduce utility-scale energy storage and first to co-locate energy storage with existing solar sites to meet the ROC requirements. To date, the technologies the company has deployed and manage are generating over 1GW of renewable energy.
