It was a childhood visit to the Centre for Alternative Technology, on vacation in Wales, that planted the seed in Vinesh Sinha to pursue a career in renewable energy.
Over time, Sinha’s interest in renewable energy continued to grow. In 2010, he dropped out of university to start FatHopes Energy. His decision came as a shock to his family, who thought it was a risky move. Today, his wife Jane leads the company with him, while his two brothers, Vikesh and Viresh, joined FatHopes Energy three years ago.
“Our solutions are anchored in sustainability because we want to help build a better environment for future generations,” says Sinha, who is CEO of the company. FatHopes Energy collects waste oil, fats and grease from factories and restaurants across Malaysia, converting it into biofuel that can be used to power internal combustion engines.
