Jonny works for Electricity North West Limited (ENWL), the distribution network operator (DNO) for the region. ENWL are responsible for maintaining and investing in the infrastructure that distributes electricity to homes and businesses across Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria and parts of Cheshire. Action on climate change has become increasingly embedded in ENWL’s work since the commitment to ‘Lead the North West to Net Zero’ in 2019, and is now one of the headline commitments in the Business Plan for 2023-28.
As Strategic Decarbonisation Manger, Jonny leads ENWL’s work to help customers play their part in the region’s rapid transition to net zero. He works across the business and with external partners to ensure customers have access to the support they need to deliver electric vehicle chargers, solar panels, heat pumps, flexible services, and other low carbon technologies.
Jonny was previously Deputy Director at Manchester Climate Change Agency, from 2015 to 2021. He established Manchester as one of the first cities in the world to set carbon reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement, and built the Manchester Climate Change Partnership, a group of senior business, political and community leaders from organisations committed to urgent carbon reduction. He has helped establish Manchester’s global profile for climate action, securing the city’s first collaboration with the C40 network of international climate leaders, to accelerate business action on net zero.
Jonny was Environmental Strategy Manager at Manchester City Council until 2015.
