Juliet Davenport is founder and CEO of Good Energy, the UK’s first 100% renewable electricity supplier. Her company, set up in 2002, currently operates two wind farms and supplies electricity to more than 50,000 customers.
As a reflection of her efforts to support greener, more-localised energy, Davenport was in 2013 awarded one of the UK’s highest honours, an OBE, for Services to Renewables.
Good Energy has won numerous awards under her leadership, such as the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust’s Outstanding Contribution to the Environment and The Observer’s Ethical Award for best online retail initiative.
Davenport also has appointments at several leading UK universities, including Bristol, London School of Economics (LSE), Imperial College and the University of Wales, and has been a member of the board at the Natural Environment Research Council since 2015.
