The Sustainability Experts

  • Andrew Rogers – Grenum

    Andrew Rogers is a Civil Engineer by training who has spent most of his career following entrepreneurial pursuits in technology. In the course of retrofitting homes for energy efficiency he found a wealth of theoretical advice but a lack of practical and specific product guidance. Grenum.com was created to help bridge this gap. More recently Andrew has been working full time with improving the energy efficiency of swimming pools. He can provide you with practical and impartial guidance on products to use for improving the sustainability of your home or apartment covering insulation, window treatments, solar PV, rainwater, lighting, energy monitoring and water heating.
