Dr Catrin Maby OBE,

With a first degree in engineering science and a Master’s in Energy Resources Management, Catrin started her working life in refrigeration engineering, but moved into energy efficiency in buildings because of fuel poverty. She set up an energy advice service for London tenants in the 1980s, authoring handbooks on home heating advice, draught-proofing and recycling. She went on to work with numerous local authorities to develop energy efficiency aspects of housing renewal programmes, as well as affordable warmth and carbon emission reduction strategies.

In 1999, Catrin established the Severn Wye Energy Agency, a sustainability charity based in Gloucestershire, leading the agency’s role until 2015, in a range of practical delivery and knowledge exchange partnerships across the UK and the EU. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to the environment and social equity. Since 2015, she has worked as an independent consultant on research and policy in the UK and EU, and completed a PhD focussing on the role of mainstream building trades in home energy retrofit.
