Ecotricity / Forest Green Rovers

Celebrating his 25th year as a green entrepreneur, Dale Vince launched Ecotricity (http://ecotricity.co.uk),  the world’s first green energy company in 1995, which powers more than 200,000 homes and businesses across Great Britain with renewable energy.  His work focuses on three key areas – energy, transport and food, collectively responsible for 80% of our own personal carbon emissions.  Ecotricity launched the Electric Highway – Europe’s first national EV charging network in 2010, and Dale is also chairman of Forest Green Rovers – recognised by FIFA and the United Nations as the World’s greenest football club.  He became a UN Climate Champion for sport in 2018, and launched his first book, Manifesto in 2020.
