A great achievement for the Clean Energy Capital team; London-based startup Clean Energy Capital has been named a finalist ahead of the London StartUp Awards ceremony.
The StartUp Awards have been launched to recognise the booming startup scene across the UK which has accelerated since the 2019 pandemic. Over 800,000 new businesses were founded in the UK since 2021, a 4.3% increase from the year before, with Clean Energy Capital proudly contributing to those figures.
A record number of businesses applied to this year’s StartUp Awards, with 1,100 firms shortlisted across ten UK nations and regions. The contribution of these companies - all of which were started in the last three years - is significant, having created over 5,000 new jobs since they were established and generating annual sales of £584 million.
Clean Energy Capital (CEC) is a renewable energy company, focused on supplying clean power to large power users, founded by Alexander Goodall in 2021. The business has been nominated for the ‘Green StartUp of the Year’, for its work offering sustainable energy solutions within the industry.
Alexander Goodall, founder of CEC, said:
“It’s a genuine privilege to be nominated for this award, and I’m incredibly proud of my team for all their hard work in getting us to this point. Providing cleaner and greener energy alternatives is essential to ensuring a better future for our planet, and we’re so proud to be at the forefront of this cause, with a truly unique solution.”
Supported nationally by Starling Bank, British Business Bank, BT, Creative Ideaz, GS1 UK, Jeeves, Join Talent, ScoreApp and The Purposeful Project, alongside many other incredible businesses, the programme will celebrate the achievements of the amazing individuals who have turned an idea into an opportunity and taken the risk to launch a new product or service.
The cohort of finalists will be considered for the regional prizes by a panel of seasoned judges with experience founding or supporting entrepreneurial ventures.
Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, the creator of the StartUp Awards, said:
“Start-up businesses are the lifeblood of any economy, being responsible for new jobs, innovation and in supporting communities in every nation and region across the UK. All the finalists this year represent the best of those entrepreneurs who have spotted an opportunity and through their sheer hard work, talent and perseverance, have created an amazing new business that is creating real impact in its sector.”
The StartUp Awards was created in collaboration with the team behind the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, one of the most successful awards programmes in the UK. The StartUp Awards are running for the second year after launching in 2022, with the final awards ceremony set to take place later this spring.
