Silvercrest Energy & Automation

Laurence Steijger

Lead Engineer

Laurence received his Eng.D. Renewables from the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST) at Loughborough University in the Midlands of the UK. As an electrical engineer, his main field of study is in system integration of renewable energy systems.

Pragmatic and passionate, Laurence is adept, agile, and adroit, possessing acumen to quickly understand the bigger picture, and in developing and implementing energy solutions that are efficient, elegant and cost-effective.

Laurence's personal residence located in the Midlands of the UK, epitomizes self-sustaining homesteading. This par exemplar dwelling exceeds energy efficiency standards, and was the first of it's kind in the UK.

Properties, either domestic or commercial, are usually not designed with the energy cost/usage and carbon footprint in mind. Laurence's aim is to reduce your energy consumption/carbon footprint, whilst increasing the comfort level of your properties. As Laurence likes to say, "Warm feet and low bills."

Specialties: energy savings; optimum resource usage; #renewableenergy ​#sustainable
