Bulb co-founder Amit Gudka is stepping down from the green energy supplier after five years to concentrate on setting up a new energy storage and infrastructure company, today revealing he felt “compelled to look further into this exciting and emerging field”. The entrepreneur, who co-founded London-based Bulb alongside CEO Hayden Wood in 2015, today said he would be leaving his role as chief energy officer at the firm, although he is to remain on the board of both Bulb and its charitable foundation. Gudka told BusinessGreen his new venture is called Virmati Energy, and already has some investors and staff on board, with plans to ramp up operations at the firm as he steps back from his day-to-day role at Bulb. Virmati Energy will initially focus on developing and operating energy storage and renewables infrastructure in the UK, with a view to later expanding the focus internationally as well as moving onto other forms of generation and “nascent technologies”, he said.
