Organisation information

The Central Energy Management team at Network Rail sits within Environment and Sustainable Development in Safety, Technical and Engineering (STE) and works within a matrix of connected service providers.  The Central team aims to provide policy, business guidance and strategic direction for the reduction of energy and water consumption across the Network Rail estate, leading to a reduction of our harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

STE Energy Management Team Role

The Energy team will:

  • Provide advice on legislative requirements
  • Seek assurance from Routes and Property that they are meeting requirements
  • Maintain a high level compliance register.

Route Energy and Finance Leads

Each Route has a designated Energy Lead and Finance Lead who are responsible for energy management activity within the Route. Role descriptions for these are available in the side-bar on the right hand side of this page.  The Energy Leads meet quarterly with the Central Energy Management team, to share good practice and to plan their energy reduction programmes.

Each Route Lead has developed a RACI to show accountability and responsibility for energy management actions within each Route.  Contact your Energy Lead for more details.

In addition, each Route now has a Utilities Specialist, formerly a part of the central team, who work to manage the utility supplies in their own area carrying out activities such as new connections, disconnections and resolving metering queries.  They work closely with the central team and the Energy Bureau, who manage the energy billing, data and Energy-Link system.

The org chart above shows how energy management activity sits within the business, and the red dotted lines indicate the lines of interface within the matrix.

Each Route Energy lead will be defining their own RACI for Energy Management, to clearly set out the Accountabilities and responsibilities at a local level.
