Head of Research and Development, Next Idea
Ben has spent his career in the electrical and solar industry, focussing on innovation and product development. Ben now leads NextIdea’s research and development in energy management.
Ben saw a need for a product that could increase the amount of solar energy used in the home and reduce the amount exported to the grid. This led him to develop the system, now commercialised by PowerGenius, a home energy management system (HEMS) for the intelligent distribution of solar energy and automation of home appliances.
