Bristol-based start-up Nusku, which is developing new heat pump technology, has revealed experienced renewable energy executive Lee Sutton, has been appointed its first non-exec director.

Engineer Sutton is the co-founder of myenergi, the designer and manufacturer of eco-smart home energy technologies, including zappi - the world’s first solar-compatible electric vehicle (EV) charger. He has also run several renewable energy tech firms.

"I’m really excited by what Nusku is doing and its ambitions to make heat pumps quicker and easier to install," he said.

"Myenergi began in a similar manner - we identified a problem which needed solving to make homes more eco-friendly and efficient. Eight years later and we’re a global company which has sold over 600,000 devices. I look forward to helping Nusku on its exciting journey."

Sutton will offer strategic guidance to Nusku's leadership team of Russell Murchie, Matthew Whitefoot and Andy Mckay, who founded Nusku in 2022 with a mission to make heat pumps more appealing to homeowners.

CEO Murchie said: "We’re really pleased to have Lee on board as a non-executive Director. His knowledge and experience of the renewable energy sector, as well as his technical expertise, will be invaluable as Nusku continues to grow at pace."

Nusku has raised almost £1 million of investment to-date, including a grant of more than £727,000 from the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero (DESNZ).

It says its heating system will be cheaper and quicker to install than existing heat pumps on the market - at a few days rather than over a week.
