Gensource, a sustainable energy services company based in Musselburgh, has been honoured with the prestigious ‘New Business of the Year’ award at the recent Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber of Commerce Business Awards ceremony. The event, held at Eskmills Venue on 7th March 2024, celebrated outstanding achievements and contributions of businesses in the region.

Founded in 2022 by Musselburgh resident Josh King and his business partner Robert Wilson, Gensource specialises in providing full turnkey energy solutions to its customers. From initial consultancy to designing and building sustainable energy projects, Gensource offers comprehensive services aimed at promoting abundant sustainable energy usage. The company has experienced significant growth since its inception and has successfully delivered projects across the MELCC region and beyond.

Gensource’s commitment to maximising impact in the local community and fostering strong partnerships has been evident throughout its journey. The company has actively contributed to the Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber of Commerce, emphasising its core value of supporting and serving the local community. Notably, Gensource’s involvement in the Chamber led to a fruitful partnership with one of its commercial clients, Melville Golf Centre, which also received recognition at the awards ceremony.

Melville Golf Centre was recognised for its innovation in business. The Centre had sought local partners to support its energy consumption goals, and Gensource stepped in to provide expertise and solutions. Through a collaborative project involving energy data analysis and the installation of a new solar PV system alongside EV charging banks, Melville Golf Centre demonstrated its commitment to reducing carbon footprint and achieving net-zero goals. The success of this project showcased the effectiveness of sustainable energy solutions in business operations and contributed to Gensource’s recognition as ‘New Business of the Year.’

The Chamber of Commerce praised Gensource for its major business opportunities in addressing the climate emergency through innovative solutions. A Chamber representative stated, “The judges were impressed with the way Gensource have seen major business opportunities in what is a climate emergency facing our society, and they are building a business dedicated to using innovative solutions to address its customers’ needs. Very impressive.”

Reflecting on their win, Robert Wilson, Commercial Director of Gensource, expressed gratitude and excitement, stating, “Winning the ‘New Business of the Year’ award is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication since our inception. It validates our vision of providing innovative solutions to address our customers’ needs and underscores the demand for our services within the local community.”

The ‘New Business of the Year’ award recognises Gensource’s significant contributions to addressing the climate emergency through its innovative approach to sustainable energy solutions. The company’s growth, stability, and vision for the future were key factors considered by the judges in selecting Gensource for this prestigious accolade.

Looking ahead, Gensource is gearing up for upcoming projects and initiatives, leveraging the recognition received from the award to further expand its operations and deliver impactful solutions in the field of sustainable energy.
