Alternergy named in list of 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain
We were pleased to find out this morning that we have been named in the London Stock Exchange’s list of 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain! It is a celebration of some of the fastest growing and most dynamic small to medium-sized enterprises in the UK today. Alternergy are one of only two businesses listed within the solar PV industry.
The list was created by selecting companies that met criteria regarding turnover, age, ownership, business type and subsidiaries. These were then filtered by their revenue growth as well as either their growth of contracts, workplace expansion, employee growth or growth in intellectual property. LSE Group states that it is almost exclusively these 1000 companies that have generated new, net job creation in recent years and that Gazelle companies are proving to be the lifeblood of the UK economy.
The report predicts expansion for the green sector, spurred on by environmental issues growing higher on companies’ corporate agendas. The Government’s plan to cut emissions by 18% by 2020, is another factor contributing to growth. 70,000 new jobs could be created within the sector if green businesses realise their potential and planned investments are carried out. On top of this, green businesses have the potential to add £20 billion to the UK economy in 2014-15.
