Company Description

We're an independent consultant and service provider, and we only ever work on green energy projects.

Natural Power started back in 1995 when we were just two people working together from a flat in Glasgow. Even in those early days we had a clear purpose: to tackle the very real fear of climate change and to help to create a better environment for future generations.

To begin with, the ambition was to raise awareness around the debate about climate change and to start offsetting carbon from fossil fuels by promoting renewable energy. We grew through recruiting passionate, motivated people who believed in what we were doing and were willing to work together to achieve it. We avoided an overly corporate approach, preferring to be flexible and driven by our beliefs.

Our beliefs and philosophy have not changed, we were - and continue to be - pioneering.
