After 8 great years as a project manager in Edinburgh, Phillip began to worry about the slow and inefficient pace of renewables development. While he felt passionate about the work, he considered the development process too inefficient and costly to compete.
"I remember sitting with our engineering partners one afternoon to review our timetable for a small wind farm in the Highlands. Our team for a single wind farm involved 16 independent specialists and contractors, and we were using email and shared links to collaborate. It seemed so old school. The lack of visibility of contractors leads to inflated costs and information sharing over email and with links is insecure and inefficient."
After carrying out dozens of interviews with renewables developers, investors and advisors across four continents, Phillip was inspired to learn that professionals everywhere had felt the same frustrations. Professionals across the value chain were fed up with the lack of purpose-built software tailored to their needs that would help them compete in a market of falling costs and razor thin margins.
IPPs too, were fed up with lengthy project due diligence processes. Christian Spies, of Smart Energy said,
“On the investor-side pre-qualifying and tracking renewables deals is a complex, lengthy and inefficient process. What the industry needs is a streamlined way for developers, investors and advisors to access and share information efficiently and securely.”
