Kayla Ente

Brighton, GB

Founder, CEO Brighton and Hove Energy Services Co-op (BHESCo)

“Leading with innovative solutions to accelerate the transition from fossil fuels in our energy supply.”

Kayla began her career with Deloitte & Touche in San Francisco and Ernst & Young in Amsterdam before moving to Greenpeace International in 1993. In 1999, as a business and project development consultant, her client portfolio included Nuon (the Dutch utility), and Ecofys  (European pioneers in renewable energy).

At Nuon, she was the financial technician on wind farm development in China and Spain and PV development projects in California and Hawaii. She advised the IEA on the feasibility of a very large scale PV project in the Sahara Desert for the predecessor to DESERTEC.

In 2004, Kayla moved to London providing business development and advisory services to utilities and SME’s in the Cleantech industry. Kayla is a qualified accountant and has an MBA in Environmental Management from the TIAS Business School in the Netherlands. Kayla has been living in Brighton since 2012.

Our continued consumption of dirty fuels like oil and coal, and expensive, dangerous power, like nuclear to meet our energy needs, is last century’s legacy. Developments in technology mean that wind power is the cheapest form of electricity.  We can get all the power we need from renewable sources like wind, solar, biomass, heat pumps, tidal and waves – the list of possibilities goes on.  BHESCo works with property owners and developers who share our vision to create clean, affordable energy so that our customers can leave a new legacy.  Become a member/investor to help us build clean, energy secure communities.  Earn a 5% return and become a member of a co-operative that is investing in the energy transition.  Join BHESCo because you care enough to support an effort to avoid catastrophic climate change, preserve our quality of life and create a better world for future generations.
