Speaker Bio

Green industrialist Dale Vince OBE has gone from ‘enemy of the state’ to ‘green energy tycoon’ but he doesn’t much care what you call him. He has dedicated his life to challenging conventional wisdom in pursuit of a better way of life, using business as a tool for environmentalism.
Dale kickstarted the now global green energy movement using the goals and values he developed on the road to help bring environmentalism into the mainstream.
He started the world’s first green energy company, Ecotricity, in 1996, leads Forest Green Rovers FC, dubbed the world’s greenest football team by FIFA; creates diamonds out of atmospheric carbon – Skydiamonds; builds windmills for export around the world – Britwind; has launched a range of plant-based school dinners and earlier this year launched the world’s first electric airline Ecojet.
In 2004, he was awarded an OBE for services to the environment and was appointed the UN Ambassador for Climate Change in 2019.
He also made the world’s first electric supercar and built the Electric Car Super Charging Highway, the UK’s first national network of EV charging stations.
His first book, Manifesto, a Sunday Times Best Seller, is a manifesto of hope, backed up by solutions, from someone with real life experience of disrupting the energy industry and paving the way for a greener planet.
Nicknamed Labour’s Green Knight by The Sunday Times, Dale is a self-professed eco-naut, does not take ‘no’ for an answer and is leading the charge for a greener Britain.
