Having specialised in energy during her undergraduate engineering degree, Ellie went onto study an MSc in Environmental Technology at Imperial College London. It was here that she realised her particular interest in decarbonisation of the built environment.
Before joining XCO2 in January 2022, Ellie worked in built environment policy, where she collaborated with heat pump and fabric efficiency manufacturers and installers to influence policy reforms.
Since joining XCO2, Ellie has conducted energy and overheating assessments using IES VE and SAP, as well as compiling energy, sustainability, and circular economy statements. She is working to build her capabilities in these areas, as well as grow her knowledge in others, including whole life-cycle carbon, passive design, and post-occupancy evaluation.
