John Burgess provides energy management advisory services relating to renewable energy solutions and effective systems operations. He firmly believes that energy-consuming systems must deliver high performance efficiently and that sustainable, low-energy buildings must provide health and wellbeing support for their occupants. He places a heavy emphasis on sustainable design practice in the built environment across all market sectors and uses post-completion evaluation of projects to improve future designs.
With over 30 years’ experience in the design and operation of the built environment in Ireland and Australia, John works across the full energy spectrum and is passionate about collaborating with academic, industry and non-governmental (NGO) partners to promote energy-related research, education and policy. He leads Arup’s involvement in the EU Horizon 2020 funded RES4BUILD project, aiming to develop solutions for integrated renewable energy systems across Europe.
