Faye qualified as an Energy and Environmental Engineer, ESOS Lead Assessor and Cibse Heat Networks Consultant, specialising in low carbon energy development and resource efficiency. She has worked extensively in private consultancy in Scotland and England, and more recently has been working for the UK Government’s Heat Network Development Unit working with Local Authorities to develop their heat network projects. Faye comes from a family of farmers and horticulturalists and so has life long experience of food production and is a permaculture practitioner. Faye saw the opportunity to develop horticulture projects utilising waste heat, and this led her to develop her business, District Eating. Over the past few years Faye has been developing the District Eating concept, which she has now developed into a commercial proposition. District Eating provides a unique service, bringing together experts in the fields of horticulture, energy engineering and vocational training to help transform our food systems while increasing efficiency and economics for heat and power producers.
Faye will be discussing her career to date, energy and food production in the UK, and how her business District Eating brings together both industries for the synergistic benefit of both.
