CEO & Founder
UGE was founded in 2008 by Nick Blitterswyk, who spent his early years of childhood on a Canadian nature reserve, and never lost his desire to preserve the resources and beauty of the Earth. Nick returned to this idea when he set out to change the way the world uses distributed renewable energy by building a company that can address the world's various energy challenges with innovative solutions. Nick has grown the company into a premier supplier of distributed renewable energy solutions, with installations for customers throughout the world. He is a strong believer in a happy, fun, and productive company culture. Nick is also a frequent guest on TV and radio on matters involving UGE, distributed generation, and cleantech as a whole. Nick is also a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, left over from his former career as an actuary.
