Verco have advised us on a range of energy and carbon related issues. Initially, they were selected to advise on our preparation for the Carbon Reduction Commitment. All staff involved in the work agree that the Verco team did a superb professional job; their ability to bring both skilled engineering (energy) and experienced financial modelling knowledge to assist us was extremely beneficial. Subsequently, we have retained them on an ongoing basis to advise on CRC and appointed them as consultants on a number of other projects. I am consistently impressed by their level of knowledge in the energy and carbon world, and the professional approach they bring to their interactions with us.
