Andrew Lever

Director

Andrew joined the Carbon Trust in 2014 during which time he has developed the company’s energy systems innovation and advisory service into a trusted source of expert knowledge and support for businesses and governments in the UK and internationally.

A key thought leader in the energy system transition, Andrew co-authored the influential report ‘Can storage help reduce the cost of a future UK electricity system?’, which remains one of the most comprehensive reviews of the benefits of storage at a UK-system level.

Andrew is currently leading a joint industry project to refresh the Carbon Trust’s seminal report on the value of electricity flexibility in Great Britain; the refresh considers the wider value unlocked by taking a systems approach across heat, transport and power sectors to reach net zero. 

Andrew is a champion of whole systems thinking and applies this to support new approaches and innovation in renewable system integration, local energy systems, consumer engagement and smart grid development.

Prior to joining the Carbon Trust, Andrew spent 16 years with E.ON working across both commercial and strategy roles in the UK, Germany and Europe. He developed E.ON’s energy services business and managed the organisation’s European retail innovation portfolio.

Andrew studied chemical engineering at the University of Strathclyde and completed an MBA at Warwick Business School.
