Environment UK GMI Energy Tesco

Following the successful launch of its renewable energy business, Leeds based construction services group GMI has now refocused this arm of its organisation to provide clients with a total energy management solution.

Having delivered an extensive range of solar photovoltaic schemes for major clients including Tesco, Town Centre Securities PLC, JCT600 and Pavers Shoes, GMI has continued to find ways of adding value for clients. The existing ‘GMI Renewable Energy’ business has been renamed to trade as ‘GMI Energy’ providing a better representation of the wider scope of capabilities offered by the group.

Expanding on the experience of delivering projects such as the largest solar pv system for Tesco in the UK and the country’s largest city centre solar system (at the time of installation) at Clarence Dock, the professional team at GMI have built a wealth of knowledge. With continual investment in working with key industry specialists, GMI has built a vast network of partners to now offer both renewable and energy efficient solutions. These include low energy lighting, biomass boilers and smart metering solutions; with the list continuing to grow.

To drive the business forward, GMI has appointed Carl Nielsen in the position of Managing Director of GMI Energy. Carl has in excess of 27 year's experience working in the M&E sector for NG Baileys and has a thorough understanding of different properties and their energy requirements.

Carl said: “It is an exciting time for GMI as the business continues to expand and grow into new areas that provide the perfect complement to the core construction business. As energy requirements and legislation for UK property is evolving in the coming years, we want to be the partner of choice for clients to provide them with a full turnkey solution for their energy management needs from a name they trust.

GMI has also made significant investment into reducing their carbon footprint as the business recently became Planet Positive certified as well as installing a unique solar research array on their head office property. The system consists of six types of solar panels with a multitude of characteristics which makes them efficient in different ways. The data results obtained from the system is being shared with the University of Sheffield to assist further research as well as providing invaluable information to offer bespoke solutions for clients.
