Vikki Wilkins, Energy Management Technician, Cornwall Council

Vikki started working with Cornwall Council in 2008 as an administrator within the Energy Management Department. During her time with Cornwall Council she has covered for various members of staff while on maternity or sick leave. She now manages all the Energy for Cornwall Council. The authority rolled out the Sigma Energy Viewer about 18 months ago and at site level this has proved to be really successful. The site supervisors/premise co-ordinators can manage their consumption/costs and also enter their meter readings. The meter readings are a great help with the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) as it means the council is reporting on actual data.
