Dr. Suket Singhal
Suket has been working with Secure for more than a decade and has recently transitioned to become Group CEO. Today he is in a prime position of being able to assess the technologies needed by utilities around the world comprehensively, so that customer service and trust can be improved while reducing the cost of energy. Before becoming Group CEO, Suket led the group’s diverse UK businesses, including Utilita – an independent energy retailer. Using smart meters as a unique opportunity to innovate, Suket has steered Utilita to provide pre-payment electricity and gas to over 550,000 consumers across Great Britain.
Several years back, Suket observed that consumers can save energy, reduce costs and increase comfort if heating and cooling controls become easier to use. Over the years, he has helped drive Secure’s various acquisitions and today Secure’s portfolio of heating and thermal control products, including smart thermostats, connected systems and cooling controls (sold under the brand Horstmann) are well-known throughout the UK. Secure continues to innovate in this field and Suket has a deep and broad understanding of the overlay between energy efficiency and the economics of supplying energy. By deploying the correct technology in the correct place, he is passionately committed to realising that it is possible to save money as a consumer and provide the electricity and gas utilities with the incentive to allow this saving.
