Jeremy Allen

Jeremy Allen Sales Engineer and Founder

Whilst at one of NZ's largest energy retailers Jeremy recognised large users of energy wanted to better manage their utility costs. However they were struggling in this effort due to a lack of good data. Thus the genesis of Energy Solution Providers (ESP).

Jeremy founded ESP to provide independent expertise and advice to help clients better manage and reduce their utility costs. With over 17 years’ utility management experience, particularly in measurement and monitoring, Jeremy uses his knowledge to create value for clients and has achieved multi-million dollar savings for many companies.

He is passionate in his belief that all companies can create massive savings through access to good data and delivers on this passion every day.

Before moving to New Zealand in 1998, Jeremy was a professional pilot servicing the First Nation communities in the wilderness of Northern Canada. He is married and the proud father of 3 children, plays ice hockey and volunteers as a youth ice hockey coach.
