Paul Boreham studied for a master's degree in Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics at City University London, and graduated in 1999.
Paul's current role involves managing the energy, water and carbon for one of the largest property owners and developers in the UK. Paul manages a team of nine that includes three energy managers for London and Retail and a bureau of five billing analysts. The team have an annual expenditure of £23 million, managing all aspects of Energy and Carbon for Land Securities; from procurement to contracts and projects.
The energy market is complex but as the costs have increased, the need for experienced professional energy managers has increased. Transparency of corporate reporting has become very important as large businesses move to demonstrate sustainability through reducing carbon emissions.
In Paul's previous role, he was the Group Energy and Carbon Manager for Morrisons Supermarkets, which was very different to managing energy in a property business.
I have found that obtaining the MSc in Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics at City, University of London has helped further my career. The teaching staff are very well known and respected in the energy and engineering industry. A degree from City can help to open doors for new energy & carbon managers.
