Good Energy announces search for new CEO

04.02.2021

Good Energy, the 100% renewable electricity supplier, is today announcing that Juliet Davenport OBE has decided to move on from her role as Chief Executive Officer and take up a Non-Executive Director position with the company as well as its subsidiary Zap-Map. Juliet will remain CEO of the company while the formal process to find the new CEO is undertaken.

Juliet founded Good Energy as a fledgling entrepreneur two decades ago with a clear purpose to give consumers the power to tackle climate change by choosing renewable power. Good Energy was an early pioneer in small-scale renewables creating HomeGen in 2004, which was a first of its kind and lay the foundations for what became the Feed-in Tariff scheme. Good Energy has since developed over 50 megawatts of solar and wind assets, grown the 100% renewable supply business, and recently announced new capabilities in electric vehicles, spearheaded by Zap-Map, in the strategic development of a mobility as a service model.

Juliet is a recognised industry figure, and her experience and insights will continue to play an important role in the continuing growth of both Good Energy and Zap-Map. Juliet's ongoing commitment as a Non - Executive Director of Good Energy and Zap-Map will provide a strong platform to support both the Board and new CEO moving forward.

Good Energy has appointed an executive search firm to recruit a new CEO, with proven experience in growing digital businesses, to guide Good Energy in this new customer centric, digital world. That process is already underway.

Juliet Davenport, CEO and Founder, Good Energy, and Chairman of Zap - Map said:

"I'm immensely proud of Good Energy and the work that it has done in transforming the UK energy horizon, leading on decentralised energy, innovating in green funding and challenging the market at every step to become zero carbon. As the industry moves from a world of megawatts to megabytes it is time to bring a fresh approach to taking the company forward, making it an optimal time for this transition. I look forward to supporting the new CEO when they are appointed to assist with the transition to a true mid 21st century energy as a service business, in a world moving faster towards zero carbon."

Will Whitehorn, Chairman of Good Energy, said:

"I would like to thank Juliet for the fantastic job she has done in building Good Energy. Her energy and entrepreneurial spirit have been critical to its success. We are delighted that Juliet will remain involved and committed to the future growth of the business and supporting the new CEO as they take the business forward. This is an exciting time for the business as we develop the Good Energy and Zap-Map brands in the new markets of energy and mobility services, and a great opportunity".
