Christine Boyle is the CEO of Senergy, a Belfast-based business bringing the world’s first nanocomposite solar thermal panels to market later this year. Not only is their technology is 50% cheaper and 3-4 times more efficient than other solar options, but they’ve also raised £1.7 million of investment while still retaining 96% ownership (!) In today’s episode we talk about:
  • Christine’s early education working in her dad’s roofing business
  • The challenges and limitations of traditional solar panels
  • And how she’s handled the highs and lows of start-up life
