Job Description

We help our clients deliver their energy and sustainability objectives in what is a rapidly changing and complex market, as new regulations and technologies are introduced in response to global climate change. Beond is a part of eEnergy Group plc, an energy as a service business, that provide innovative software solutions to support non domestic energy users on their Net Zero journey.

Beond is growing its existing sales team to accelerate the growth of our Net ZeERO proposition, which aims to leverage technology to enable private and public sector clients to reduce their energy bills with no upfront costs. The proposition is made up of 3 tangible solutions;

  1. My ZeERO – a cloud based platform that streams individual asset consumption data in real time identifying energy waste (e.g. lighting, HVAC..)
  2. As-a-service Green Fund- a no CAPEX solution to enable customers to install energy reduction solutions to reduce energy waste, paid for by the cost savings
  3. The ZeERO Carbon Market reverse action- proprietary software that is proven to deliver leaner and cleaner energy supply contracts than our competitors

By installing My ZeERO sensor equipment, we are able to identify energy waste and build the business case to install no CAPEX solutions, including guaranteeing savings.  Where the client still needs to draw energy from the grid, we ensure we source the leanest and cleanest supply contract via our ZeERO Carbon Market.
