eeTEQ (, based in Portishead, offers expertise-driven solutions geared towards business efficiency. Our business operates under four banners:


eeTEQ water – We have significant experience in helping organisations to reduce their water costs, initially by ensuring their billing is correct. We work to prepare evidence to address anomalies, whether regarding non-return to sewer, trade effluent or other charges. We have worked with organisations of all sizes, including many big brand organisations, on this front.

eeTEQ energy – We help save costs by adopting more efficient heating and lighting technology and also work with renewable energy partners. This is delivered via a semi-consulting framework whereby we undertake the groundwork and develop cost-saving calculations to support decision making, then provide quotations to deliver the work. With some excellent government incentives, projects can work out cost neutral or cost positive from day one.

eeTEQ monitoring & compliance – Timely data and business intelligence sits at the heart of a successful cost saving or process improvement initiative and we provide radio data transmitter-receiver technology and software to centralise this information and provide reports and alerts to allow you to focus on what’s important. Our industrial “Internet of Things (IoT)” technology has potential to add value in a host of situations.

eeTEQ innovation – At our heart is a capacity for problem solving and we are not afraid to be creative in our approach. We have worked with a range of organisations on wide-ranging problems, from business optimisation initiatives, to product development and knowledge management initiatives, to market alignment initiatives, where our understanding of both technology and business has had an important part to play.


eeTEQ was formed by Dr Mike Faram, who also operates as a technology and management consultant, with a track record in helping early stage/SME organisations to develop their products, optimise their processes, analyse and meet market needs, and generally improve performance, adopting innovative approaches where necessary. He has worked with a number of engineering/technology businesses, both as a consultant and CTO.


Mike is a Chartered Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) with engineering degrees and an MBA in Engineering Management.

On joining SevernNet in 2017, Mike said “Beyond the networking opportunities presented by SevernNet, I very much like the ‘environmental’ and ‘social’ agenda – very refreshing to see small and big businesses getting together to find the best way forward, not just for themselves, but for the wider community and the environment.”
