Former bursary student now Chief Commercial Officer

Guernsey Electricity has appointed Stuart Blondel to the newly created role of Chief Commercial Officer.

Mr Blondel will oversee Guernsey Electricity’s commercial activities as well as taking a strategic focus to ensure the business is at the forefront of supporting the energy transition to a low carbon future.

Since joining Guernsey Electricity in 2002 as a bursary student while studying for a degree in mechanical engineering, Mr Blondel has held various roles within the company through front line engineering operations, infrastructure planning, energy market analysis and now into commercial operations and business strategy.

Most recently, he was the Head of Asset Management for nearly five years.

"I am looking forward to a new focus that concentrates on the demand side of our electricity system – the way electricity is used by our customers, as this will come to define the future of our electricity market," said Mr Blondel.

"In recent years I have focussed my attention on emerging energy technologies and changing electricity markets across the world that could potentially contribute to Guernsey’s energy future. There are many opportunities for our community to take advantage of as we transform the local energy market and fulfil our commitment to being completely supplied by renewable and sustainable energy."

Guernsey Electricity CEO Alan Bates added: "Stuart brings a wealth of experience in the electricity industry across a range of technical and commercial disciplines, giving him a unique appreciation of the alignment between strategy, operations and how the business needs to develop for the future.

"The energy transition is a key strategic focus for Guernsey Electricity as we seek to become and remain first choice for energy in the decarbonised energy future which Guernsey aspires to achieve. Stuart’s role is pivotal in ensuring we are able to deliver appropriate solutions that deliver energy in a fair and equitable way for all islanders."
