We were the first supplier to offer 100% renewable electricity to UK households when we were founded back in 1999. Over a decade later, all other suppliers still rely on electricity generated using fossil fuels or nuclear power. Good Energy's electricity is sourced purely from the wind, water, sun and through sustainable biogeneration.
But more than simply supplying 100% renewable electricity, we're helping the UK achieve a future that's powered purely by renewables. There’s a lot to do; it requires fundamental changes to the way energy is generated and used in the UK. But we believe it’s possible. And there’s a growing body of research, including our own, proving that it is.
Part of the Good Energy Group, we’re owned by around 1,700 shareholders, 90% of whom are Good Energy customers. You can find out more about our board and ownership here.
Good Energy isn’t just a business. Founded with one clear goal – to make a difference to climate change – we support and encourage everyone who works here to play a part in achieving a future powered purely by renewables.

The Good Energy Academy
Launched in October 2009 and initially introduced into our Customer Care Team, the Academy has now been extended to include every employee in the company so that we’re all able to provide a personal and professional service with in-depth knowledge spanning all aspects of a brighter energy future.
That means, from generating your own electricity, to top-notch energy efficiency advice, they’ve got the answer. Or can help you to find it. We call it Fluent in Energy.
Our founder and CEO Juliet Davenport set up Good Energy because of a determined desire to tackle climate change.
She wanted to offer consumers the opportunity to make a better choice about where they bought their electricity – from a 100% renewable electricity supplier dedicated to growing renewable energy generation in the UK.
We’re committed to running our business responsibly, and ensuring it has a positive impact on our employees, our customers and our planet is a key part of achieving our aim of building a renewable energy future. It has informed every decision we have made from the very beginning.
Proud of our strong sense of identity and ethical commitment, and determined to be as transparent as possible with our activities, we produce a values report every year to provide a summary of our performance in relation to the environment and our stakeholders. Most importantly, it incorporates an independent verification report to ensure that our claims about the 100% renewable electricity that we supply are completely true.
From the pens we write with to the way we buy our energy, our values are woven into every aspect of what Good Energy is and does. And not the type to rest on our laurels, we aspire to improve our environmental performance year on year.
