Fast Track 100

In 2006, Ben Cosh, 39, a management consultant, realised that global warming was real during a climbing trip to Mont Blanc. He returned home determined to minimise his own carbon footprint. Cosh and university friend Rob Denman, 38, conceived the idea for TGC Renewables, which develops, installs and operates solar and wind power systems. It began by working with farmers who had spare land. Later it linked up with pension funds, as its systems are long-term investment projects. In 2010, Constantine Group invested in a 33% stake.
