Growth pathway

Fleetsolve has been at the heart of the energy transition for over 20 years. Its renewable combined heat and power (CHP) units are helping to power some of the UK’s best-known organisations, including NHS hospitals, local authorities, retail chains, manufacturing sites, commercial offices and universities.

Previous projects include the design and implementation of onsite renewables for the world’s first carbon-zero superstore, the current RICS Renewable Project of the Year, and the most sustainable university in the UK. 

Keith O’Connor, CEO, Fleetsolve says:

“We’re delighted to welcome six new team members, who join us at an exciting time in Fleetsolve’s journey. More and more companies are turning to sustainable onsite generation in the wake of the energy crisis, and renewable CHP is a growing market as people realise the benefits of this clean, resilient and efficient power source.

“Our new team members will play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our growth plans – and in doing so, help many organisations on their energy transition journey to onsite decarbonisation and ultimately net-zero.”
