About Us

A market leader in Lincolnshire, providing EPCs and Green Deal Reports for solicitors, estate agents, letting agents, housing associations and private clients, The Energy Counter was established in 2007 to carry out energy assessments in and around Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Immingham, Louth and the surrounding villages.

With experience of local energy assessments and the needs of local clients, our business processes have evolved, following client feedback, to provide the service rapidly and efficiently in a manner that ensures optimum ease and convenience for our clients. As a result, The Energy Counter's reputation for reliable and rapid service has fuelled consistent growth.

As a professional Chartered Engineer and former estates manager, founder and lead assessor, Colin Childs, has had to demonstrate high levels of professional integrity, competence, responsibility and conduct to maintain chartered registration. Further, his background in engineering, property and estate management provides a solid foundation of knowledge and experience with which he can advise clients on the implications of the ratings and recommendations within their EPCs and Green Deal Reports.

A former senior officer in the Royal Air Force, Colin says that "the Service ethos of exceeding expectations, a 'can-do' attitude and dedication to consistent outstanding service are the values that underpin business in The Energy Counter."
