Steven Lynch has been appointed as managing director of Energy Assets Utilities (Scotland).

He joined the Energy Assets Group in December 2015 with the acquisition of Blyth Utilities – a utility network construction company he co-founded with his brother, Colin.

Colin Lynch was recently appointed as chief executive of Energy Assets Group.

Operating across the UK, Energy Assets is an independent metering services, asset management and utility network construction company.

For example, the company help prevent power black-outs in Knoydart, Inverness-shire – particular

in periods of high demand, such as the holiday season around Christmas and New Year.

But all that has changed with the upgrading of the local hydro-power generation system and the design and installation of Energy Assets’ Z-Lynk demand management technology.

The Z-Lynk system monitors mains frequency and power demand continuously across the Knoydart network. When the hydro system comes close to its maximum threshold, Z-Lynk sends command signals via a low power transmitter to receivers installed on domestic storage heaters to instigate progressive and automatic load switching to keep the supply balanced.

The system also monitors the cumulative amount of time each load is shed, ensuring that switching is evened-out across several loads of equal priority so that no single home is discriminated against.
