Start Up - Mark Pymm of nuWorld Energy with Arthur Foreman of Finance for Enterprise.

It was a spark of an idea first cooked up at director Mark Pymm’s dining table – since then Start-Up Award winner nuWorld Energy Ltd has gone from strength to strength.

The green energy company, based in Chesterfield, is a leading consultancy for green energy technologies.

The firm installs and maintains electric vehicle chargers in homes, businesses and public spaces and has thrived in a market dominated by bigger companies.

It has installed more than 450 charge points across the country, helping other businesses transition to a greener fleet.

nuWorld is one of the most recommended on forums and on social media, and – most importantly – it practises what it preaches, the company uses an electric Nissan Leaf as its company car.

Making a gross profit of £75,000 last year, the company looks set for a bright future.

The business is passionate about going green and is a leading installation partner of Zero Carbon World, a charity which donates electric vehicle charging stations to businesses in the hotel, tourist and leisure industry.

nuWorld was the winner of new business of the year at the Derbyshire Times’ Business Awards last year.

Director Mark and finance director Darren George, who founded the company, both have a passion and a background in renewable and green energies.
