Fast Track 100

Led by Austin Barcley, 46, this Mancunian company helps the Big Six energy firms comply with legal obligations to help lower-income customers improve the carbon efficiency of their homes. It was founded in 2011, receiving a £250,000 funding boost from the Greater Manchester Investment Fund in 2012, and began its first contract with EDF in 2014. It identifies eligible customers and manages a nationwide network of installers that insulate homes and improve their heating systems. Sales hit £11.9m in March. Improveasy is also beginning to provide finance for homeowners who want to make improvements to reduce energy consumption, or to switch to a green mortgage.
