Oli Coe, 25, project engineer, Warwickshire 
 
University of Warwick, Civil Engineering graduate, Oli, started his role at the Farm Energy Centre straight out of university.
 
“My role as an engineer is varied, that’s the beauty of working for a smaller company. It’s challenging at times, but ultimately rewarding,” explains Oli.
“The knowledge and interest that I have gained in a short time has been incredible.”
 
Oli works with government departments, industry organisations, utility companies and manufacturers, and provides a wide range of advice and practical support to farmers and growers. 
 
Oli’s role focuses on technical research projects and involves site visits, lots of outdoor work, and talking to farmers and growers, as well as the odd presentation. He also gets involved with data analysis and report writing.
 
“Every day is different, and being someone who likes to keep an open mind, some of the novel projects that we come across really fire up the imagination.”
 
“There’s not much more important than the food we eat, so for me, combining a job dealing with the people providing it, environmental issues and my engineering background was ideal,” adds Oli.
 
“We’ve been working closely with AHDB Potatoes Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research on a project to reduce the energy use and carbon footprint of GB potato storage. My team will at BP2013, why not come and find out more about it.”
