About Us Basic


Peter Pedersen – Business Development Manager

Overall responsibility for the commercial sales activities within the Cool or Cosy group. Apart from direct involvement in Key Accounts and tenders, I lead a team of experienced and dedicated sales professionals and support staff.

Prior to Cool or Cosy, I worked in various sales roles with Smart Parking, Safe Roads and Rite Price Heating and Cooling. I have held management roles with The Office Relocation Company, Online Security Services, American Express and Armourguard Security.

I have been involved with amateur operatic societies and Opera New Zealand, and played local soccer for some 35 years but have now retired from theatre and the soccer field. I am happy restricting my sporting activities to being a keen golfer. I enjoy reading and usually have at least one fiction and one non-fiction book on the go at any one time.

Andrew Paton – Technical Engineering Manager

Andrew’s role is to measure how energy is being used by our customers and then to translate the findings into real world suggestions on how to save resources. This includes reviewing gas, electricity and alternative energy sources like solar PV (rooftop and stand alone) and solar hot water generators.   With that information he can calculate potential for energy savings, whilst identifying any health or safety issues related to planned projects.

By prioritising energy saving measures, he can suggest a plan to save money by cutting back on wasted resources. This has included the deployment of evacuated tube hot water systems, solar PV systems, voltage optimisation, soft start technology, variable speed drives, and power factor correction.

Andrew’s background in Engineering, Research and Development, and Manufacturing means our customers are guaranteed of getting cutting edge technology with a proven track record in the field.

In his spare time, Andrew is an avid Programmer (C++ / Python), Tinkerer, and Mountain Bike enthusiast.

Kirillee Horsell – Business Development

Kirrillee’s role is to manage the steps of your project with our team and ensure you are kept up to date throughout the process.

Every commercial site receives a customised solution and Kirrillee will help you understand the financial and energy benefits of your proposal and present your solution in an easy to understand format. You will be educated on all rebates, government initiatives and opportunities available to help you reduce bills.

During her time at Commercial Energy Solutions, Kirrillee has created a partnership with the RAA, provided opportunities for community clubs to save money off bills with no out of pocket costs, and helped clubs earn a regular income though our referral programme.

Mark Paxton – Senior Energy Consultant

Mark is responsible for translating the engineering plan into a financial model. He uses financial models to accurately predict the savings our customers can expect. The financial model can then be developed into a formal and concise proposal that can be communicated with the customer (individuals or board members).
