Company History


Energy and Carbon Management has a long rich heritage embedded in the industry of Energy, Carbon and Water Management. 

That heritage began over 40 years ago in 1972, when Consumers Utility Costs was first established.  In 1988, Jon Henderson started up the ECM partnership, which subsequently became a limited company in 1996.

2007 saw the two market leading companies begin to work together for the benefit of their clients, and four years later in 2011, the union was made official under the trading name Energy and Carbon Management (E&CM).  E&CM grew from strength to strength, boasting established relationships with all suppliers in the market and a client retention rate of 97%. 

On the back of this success in 2011 E&CM launched the Associate programme which offered a unique opportunity for individuals to build their own professional services business, whilst increasing E&CM market share in the UK energy market, enabling further development and strengthening of the E&CM core services. 

The achievements and hard work of E&CM were recognised nationally in 2013 by its clients with shortlisting for two distinguished Energy Consultancy Awards. 

As the business continues to grow, 2015 holds exciting developments for E&CM clients with the first quarter seeing the launch of the new E&CM website side by side with the launch of the unique web portal, Ingenuity, providing clients bespoke dashboards to monitor their complete energy profile.
