Leading renewable energy company Low Carbon joins forces with the world’s most successful sailors


The SailGP Great Britain Team, led by the world’s most successful Olympic sailors Sir Ben Ainslie and Hannah Mills OBE, have today announced a new three-year partnership with Low Carbon, a global renewable energy company. The partnership will support three million young people to take climate action in addition to supporting The Great Britain SailGP Team to become the most sustainable elite sporting squad in the world.

Founded by Chief Executive Roy Bedlow in 2011, Low Carbon is working to generate 20 GW of renewable energy by 2030. To put this into context, this would be enough energy to power more than 7 million homes, which equates to  powering every home in every city visited by the SailGP tour this season. Simultaneously the company has a target to reach net-zero energy across all measures by 2030. The longstanding certified-B Corporation was recognised as ‘Best in Class’ in the environmental category in 2022 for its impact and contribution to switch the world to 100% renewable energy in the fight against climate change.
