Biography

Hayden Wood is Co-founder of Bulb, a community of energy generators and energy consumers. Bulb uses technology to bring them together in the most cost-effective way.

Bulb started supplying renewable electricity and gas to UK homes and businesses in 2015. It is now rated the #1 supplier by independent review site Trustpilot.

Bulb uses technology to deliver energy to its members more cost effectively and to help them use it more wisely. Bulb is committed to offering its members a fair deal; as Bulb save costs it shares the savings its members.

Prior to founding Bulb, Hayden studied economics at LSE and spent 10 years as a management consultant, first at Monitor Group and then Bain & Company. During his time working with one of the major UK energy suppliers, Hayden became aware of the inherent inefficiencies in traditional energy companies and the lack of affordable renewable energy options for UK consumers. Faced with this glaring inequity he decided to leave Bain and use his industry experience to found Bulb, alongside old friend and co-founder Amit Gudka.

Hayden and his co-founder Amit have built all aspects of Bulb’s technology led operation from the ground up. Hayden’s particular area of focus is in membership growth, product development and Bulb’s unique emphasis on growing an engaged member community.

Hayden is a self-confessed vinyl addict. He’s also a lifelong Tottenham fan, which has its ups and downs much like the wholesale energy markets.
