About GRIDSERVE

The ideas, values and people that power our mission

Our story

We started generating sustainable energy for critical power infrastructure in 2017, and as our ability to accelerate decarbonisation grew, our ambition did too. We knew we needed to usher in a big, meaningful and lasting change.

GRIDSERVE’s mission is to deliver sustainable energy on the scale needed to move the needle on climate change. Our reason for being is simple: we want to leave this world a better place than we found it.

To do this, we’re working tirelessly to innovate the solutions needed to deliver a paradigm shift so we can reshape energy and transport in the UK forever.

“We build unrivalled hybrid solar farms to generate planet-friendly energy and we deliver that power to EV drivers across the UK through the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway.

Our EV charging infrastructure, which includes our award-winning Electric Forecourts®, completely reimagines the EV charging experience, because we believe that change, while much needed, does not mean compromise.

To inspire a systematic shift to zero emissions motoring, we know that EVs need to be accessible for everyone, which is why GRIDSERVE Car Leasing was born. And because we like going the extra mile for our planet, we plant 100 trees for each car leased from us.”

Sustainability in action

People

We put people before profits and sustainability before sales. Our customers, employees and partners are at the centre of everything we do.

Our core values

We’re building a company culture that is customer-focussed and data-driven, with values that are woven into the fabric of what it means to be a GRIDSERVER. These are the values that help define who we are, what we stand for and how we act.

Every member of the GRIDSERVE family inspires us to do better and be better. This feels more like a vocation than simply a job, and although the future may be uncertain, we’re committed to understanding and improving our planet.

We know our future is dependent on working with others towards the greater good. Inside the business and beyond, we foster long-term relationships and work with partners keen to do business the right way.

We don’t wait to be asked to solve a problem; we use creativity to come up with great solutions that deliver the best results for everybody involved while having a sense of personal responsibility for GRIDSERVE’s bigger picture.

We are bold thinkers, unafraid of challenging the status quo and always looking to make things better.

We don’t do spin or sugar-coating or get seduced by meaningless statistics. What we are trying to achieve is not simple and there will, of course, be setbacks. Yet maintaining an honest dialogue with both our colleagues and customers is critical.

We are determined to leave the world in a better place and make decisions that will have an enduring, positive impact in the long term. We work constantly to create a generous and responsible culture, no matter what our level or department.

Our positivity emanates from being passionate about addressing the climate challenge. We’re always looking for ways to stay curious and strive to be better versions of ourselves. We don’t get discouraged by setbacks but work smarter to find a way forward.

Any innovative company needs to evaluate risks and make calculated choices, but we’re like giant human sponges: always learning, actively listening and asking questions to make the most informed decisions.
