Play • 14 min
We speak to Dan Bates, Founder and CEO of Rebel Energy about launching a new breed of energy supplier in the UK. Dan's mission with Rebel Energy is to address inequality and the climate crisis with a startup that addresses 3 mega trends in the energy industry:

1. Global Regulatory Changes. This can be seen in the USA's renewed commitment to the Paris Agreement, many countries and businesses commitment to carbon neutrality by the middle of the century and the upcoming COP26 UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow, Scotland later this year.

 2.Technology Changes. With advancements in wind, solar and tidal energy generation and the huge shift over to electric vehicles.

3. Consumer Changes. Consumers are seeking more ethical businesses, exploring choices and placing money into companies that they trust.

Dan also discusses the UK startup culture that has enabled challenger, 'disrupter' businesses to flourish with many traditional barriers disappearing.
