It’s international women’s day, this years theme is #ChooseToChallenge so we thought it was a great opportunity for you get to know our Co founder Anne Marie McGoldrick
Meet Anne Marie McGoldrick
Anne Marie is the co-founder of The Electric Storage Company and is the Director responsible for business development and operational delivery. With over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry she delivers the operational plans to support the company’s vision.
Having spent most of her career in financial services and operations we asked Anne Marie why she made the move into the energy storage sector.
“That’s easy my Co founder and husband, Eddie, needed my help to bring his ‘big idea’ to life. He has spent his career in the electricity sector and we are both passionate about helping all customers prosper from the Energy Revolution and meet the net zero targets. I chose to take on the challenge of changing the way the energy industry brings service to customers to relect the future of green energy.“
How easy is it to achieve your goal?
“It’s not easy, the industry is highly regulated with large utilities in charge of the network. My experience in the similarly regulated finance sector allowed me to build a stakeholder group that has helped us to navigate the system and ultimately lead us to the creation of The Electric Storage Company, supported by Invest NI and funded by innovate UK. Our approach to cleaner, greener, smarter electricity enables us to install free solar panels and storage batteries in homes, collect the data and use the predictability and flexibility to earn revenue and reduce costs for customers. We are also helping communities to build towards Net Zero future by them becoming a Virtual Power Plant within their local area.”
Ultimately, what do you want to achieve?
“We have 4 main goals (which you can read here). We have a great team who are all working really hard to deliver cleaner, smarter green energy to everyone’s home “ I also love the challenge of delivering on the idea.”
