AITL team expands as demand for net zero planning increases

Grace Martin, Head of Marketing, Advanced Infrastructure

Energy data and software company Advanced Infrastructure has made a series of new hires to support demand for their services in helping public and private sectors plan local energy transitions and operate using low-carbon power.

Advanced Infrastructure develops and provides spatial analytics and digital twins for the energy transition. The company helps local authorities, distribution network operators and consultants to plan the rollout of low carbon infrastructure.

Founded in 2020 by Graduates of the University of Cambridge, Lily Cairns Haylor and Christopher Jackson, alongside Suhas Dattatreya and Kalpitha Nidigal, Advanced Infrastructure now employs over 25 team members from around the globe including data scientists, software engineers and carbon specialists.

In order to keep up with demand for their services, the business has made four significant hires in November within their commercial and data teams.

The new hires include Head of Marketing- Grace Martin, Product Specialist- Gabriel Clarkson in addition to Building Physicist Nick Hay and Energy Modeller Pardis Sheikhzadeh who join the business via a knowledge transfer partnership with De Montfort University.

In the past two years the company has built a client base of public and private sector organisations including Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, Oxfordshire County Council and Dundee City Council through project LEO and RESOP as well as B2B and B2C organisations such as Zapmap and Cepro.

Lily Cairns Haylor, Co-Founder and Head of Product commented: 

“With EU and UK targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to Net Zero by 2050, both local governments and private organisations now have a huge challenge ahead of them. Our aim is to support the UK in transitioning to renewable energy faster, cost effectively and collaboratively.

“Through our expanding team we now have the right people in place to support our next phase of growth which will enable us to reach and work with more local governments and the private sector to achieve their ambitious net zero targets.”   

Suhas Dattatreya, Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer commented:

“As the UK electrifies transport and heating in a bid to reach net zero by 2050, we are seeing more demand for our energy data and software products such as our Local Area Energy Planning Tools and Carbon Data Services. 

“Our products and tools are constantly evolving to improve the functionality for our clients who trust us to deliver scalable and data-driven software.

In order to meet these expectations it’s imperative we have the right team and infrastructure in place to make this possible.”
