Skills

CSE has been developing effective solutions to climate change and the misery of cold homes since 1979. Our experience shows that engaging people and communities is as fundamental to success as technical rigour. It also highlights the importance of developing solutions which are based on sound evidence built on robust research.

CSE brings together an in-depth understanding of UK and international energy policy with strong practical experience of delivering technically robust local and regional initiatives.

Our people have a range of different skills and specialisms including:

  • technical and engineering
  • community engagement
  • advice provision
  • insulation-scheme management
  • training and education
  • research and data analysis (including GIS)
  • energy policy
  • planning
  • marketing and communications

This enables us to form multi-disciplinary project teams which meet the needs of our different clients and funders.

CSE has strong project management capabilities and robust quality management systems and can back this up with effective IT and administrative support capabilities. We have a highly qualified workforce (nearly all our staff have a higher education degree, the majority in energy or environmental sciences) and provide all staff with a range of training opportunities appropriate to the organisations and their own development needs.
