Innovative North West energy technology company Extreme Low Energy (ELe) has brought a product designer into its team.

James Long, 23, will work on ELe’s award-winning products, improving their consumer appeal by concentrating on enhancing appearance, packaging and ergonomics.

James graduated from Brunel University with a first-class honours degree. In his final year he was awarded the prestigious Graham Hawkes prize, named after the famous marine engineer, for redesigning a bike’s tyre to reduce spray.

Originally from Wiltshire, James has made the move north to West Lancashire, joining ELe after successful internships with design consultancies PDD Group, i3Works and also Samsung.

Mark Buchanan, director and founder of ELe, said:

“It’s pleasing to bring such a skilled creative into the team.

“James will focus on shaping how ELe products look, feel, function and, ultimately, how they are delivered to clients and consumers.”

James said:

“It’s an exciting challenge to join a business involved in the burgeoning field of low energy technologies.

“I am determined to develop attractive, reliable and sustainable product solutions for ELe and its customers.”

From its head office in Skelmersdale, ELe specialises in creating innovative low-energy infrastructures utilising DC power, having identified the huge energy and carbon savings that can be made by eliminating the wasteful AC/DC power conversion used by many electrical products.
