Board update

Good Energy, the 100% renewable electricity supplier and innovative energy services provider, today announces that after over 20 years, Juliet Davenport, Founder and Non-Executive Director, will step down from the Good Energy Board at the AGM on 22 June 2022.

After 22 years of leadership with Good Energy and just over a year as a Non-Executive Director - having stepped down as CEO in April 2021 - Juliet Davenport has chosen not to stand in order to allow for the continued expansion of her portfolio career in the energy industry.

Having founded Good Energy, one of the UK's first 100% renewable electricity suppliers and the company that created the blueprint for home-based solar power generation in the UK, Juliet is widely acknowledged as a pioneer in the renewable industry.

Juliet is the host of the Great Green Questions podcast and soon to be author of The Green Start-Up, publishing in October 2022. The book will draw heavily on her experience running a renewable electricity business for two decades, as well as interview material from a wide range of experts and entrepreneurs. She currently holds a string of high-profile roles with the Energy Institute, Crown Estate, Ombudsman Services, Connected Kerb, and, Atrato Onsite Energy among others.

 

Will Whitehorn, Chair of Good Energy, said:

"Juliet's contribution to Good Energy and to the wider energy transition has been enormous. When renewables were not considered worthy of serious consideration by investors and made up less than 2% of the power we used as a country, she understood that ordinary energy customers wanted to help tackle climate change. She was one of the first to pave a path which the rest of the industry has followed. We thank her deeply for her contribution and look forward to seeing her continue to inspire and lead the way towards a cleaner, greener future."

 

Nigel Pocklington, CEO of Good Energy, said:

"Picking up the baton of CEO from Juliet last year was both daunting and an honour. She is rightly respected having built Good Energy over 20 years, with a remarkable track record in leading and innovating in renewables. I want to thank her not only for her contribution as a Director over the past year but for laying the foundations of a business over the previous 20, which is now fit for the future."

 

Juliet Davenport said:

"I will always cherish Good Energy - its people, customers and investors. We built something together that remains truly different and have shown that renewables are to be reckoned with. The past year has been an extremely turbulent one in energy, but it has been heartening to see the business navigate the crisis well whilst continuing to build on its mission and strategy under Nigel's leadership. I believe it has a promising future, continuing to help drive the energy transition."
