We are a team of renewable energy experts and enthusiasts, dedicated to assisting Britain in the fight against climate change through the development of considered, appropriate renewable energy projects around the country.
Under the guidance of local planning experts and with advice from the local authorities, our team of experienced project planners and renewable energy engineers work together to develop green electricity projects that will provide a lasting supply of environmentally friendly electricity to communities across the country.
At ReThink, we prioritise local knowledge and local people as we believe that, whilst the fight against climate change is a global issue, it should be local communities that benefit first.
Pete Grogan is a qualified lawyer with a background in project finance and commercial contracts. During his MBA (focusing new venture creation) Pete's longstanding environmental concerns steered him towards the world of Renewable Energy. In 2010 he joined an international solar EPC company as Head of Legal and Business Operations where he developed excellent working relationships with solar EPC contractors, financiers and solar PV hardware manufacturers. In 2012 Pete, alongside Joel, developed a pipeline of ground mount solar projects in the UK and ReThink Energy was born.
After 10 years in International Project Management and Business Development across a variety of industries (from new media and television to FMCG), Joel leapt across to the Renewable Energy sector where he could focus on social and environmental responsibility. He joined Pete at the international solar EPC in 2010 as Head of Commercial Projects where he secured the business of some of Britain’s best known retailers. In 2012, Joel and Pete cofounded ReThink Energy with a view to providing a source of clean, green electricity for Britain.
