Amit Gudka is Co-Founder of Bulb Energy, a tech-enabled energy supplier. In July 2014, the Bulb co-founders saw a huge disconnect between demand for renewable energy and homes that actually switched. They commissioned a YouGov survey of more than 2,000 people in May 2016 and found “around three quarters of people say they want to switch to renewable, but today only one percent of homes have chosen to be supplied by a hundred percent renewable supplier”. Amit, who was an energy trader at Barclays for eight years focussing on European gas and electricity markets, saw an opportunity and the result was Bulb Energy. Amit holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge and joined Barclays on graduation.
