Ecotricity supplies electricity and gas to more than 200,000 UK customers, with most of its energy generated from renewable sources: about 40% is derived from wind turbines and “sun parks” owned by the company. Managing director Dale Vince, 56, founded the firm in 1995, and is rolling out electric car charging points across the motorway network, with its customers getting a discounted rate. He also owns vegan football club Forest Green Rovers; and in May, he announced plans to install Ecotricity’s first energy storage project close to its Stroud head office.
