Meet the team
The people behind your wood supply.
Stewart runs Vert Energy Associates, which is South East Wood Fuels’ consultancy arm. He has worked since 2001 in biomass and other green energy consultancy, technical sales of boiler systems and wood pellets, and wood chip and wood fuel market development.
Previously he was a climate change and environmental journalist and a green campaigner with Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth. He is responsible for conducting and managing South East Wood Fuels’ consulting projects, often in association with other independent wood heating or specific technical specialists, and has carried out many feasibility studies including those for heat networks, wood fuel assessments, and been involved in the development of ESCOs.
Stewart is a small woodland owner and also part of the Management team for a Community Woodland in East Sussex. For fun he sings in a community choir and keeps loose through regular yoga.
