Simon has been working in the environmental field since 1997 and has considerable experience of working across a range of environmental issues and sectors.
He started out with the Environment Agency working on aquatic systems, and in 2003, moved to Government Office for London to lead on the integration of sustainable development into economic development programmes in support of London’s transition to a low-carbon economy. In 2007, he joined the London Development Agency working on environmental programmes, including establishing the London Green Fund.
Simon moved to the Greater London Authority in 2010 where he now works on Energy and Climate Change Mitigation from both a policy and programme development perspective. His main areas of work are currently in decentralised energy and district heating but also include energy efficiency, spatial planning, and the low-carbon, resource-efficient economy.
