Leigh Hitchens

Legislative compliance and energy management

Leigh Hitchens is an independent energy management and legal compliance specialist with 33 years industry experience. Having spent many years managing commercial procurement teams for three of the “big six” suppliers, he re-trained in various specialisms linked to reducing organisations’ energy consumption, which is critical in the move to a Zero Carbon future.

Providing compliance and support with net zero, SECR, ESOS, carbon reduction and energy management, Leigh’s experience and knowledge is most likely to appeal to any organisation keen to manage their energy in a cost-effective way, to improve their “green” credentials, and also ensure all legislative requirements are met. Leigh is based in West Sussex but travels frequently to support businesses/organisations nationwide.
