Lightfoot is an award-winning, highly innovative cleantech engineering company

Mark, our CEO to this day, was involved with a business that completed hybrid van conversions but ran into trouble with one particular client. They had taken delivery of a fleet of vans with first-in-class hybrid engines, but saw barely any change in efficiency… Something wasn’t adding up.

After tearing the engines apart and analysing every nut and bolt in search of an answer, the team eventually realised that having a clean engine is only part of the solution. The person behind the wheel has as much responsibility for performance and efficiency as what’s beneath the bonnet.

“If a driver is inefficient, their vehicle will be too.”

And so, Lightfoot was born.

We’ve been helping businesses and drivers save fuel and reduce emissions ever since and, today, our technology is used by hundreds of companies across the UK. We even launched Lightfoot to private motorists in late 2018.

We’ve been growing at a supersonic rate, with 2018 our strongest year yet. We received close to £5m (combined) in funding from Innovate UK and BGF and moved to our new award-winning HQ, Innovation Valley.
