Juliet Davenport is the founder and CEO of Good Energy Group PLC, a Wiltshire-based green electricity company that employs over 170 people enabling individuals, businesses and communities to make a difference to climate change through its products and services. In January 2013, Juliet Davenport was appointed OBE for services to renewable electricity supplies.
Juliet’s passion for renewable energy grew out of an early interest in climate change, which she studied as part of her degree in physics. Wanting to make a difference in this area, she followed her degree with an internship in european energy policy and a masters in economics. It was after this that she felt that people should be part of the solution, not just seen as the problem, and started Good Energy to encourage householders and business to get involved.
A founding member of the Social Stock Exchange, Good Energy strives to lead by example and set the standard in the energy market as an ethically and socially responsible company, showing that an energy business can be commercially successful because of its values, not despite them. In 2013 the company was named as the best green electricity supplier by Ethical Consumer magazine and was top of the Which? Customer satisfaction survey for the second year running.
