Head of Development

The power system is one of the biggest and most complex machines built by humanity and this system is changing. Solar parks and offshore wind are only part of the story. By 2030, we'll have 200 million small-scale power assets in Europe - rooftop solar, small wind and hydro, biomass and geothermal power, as well as storage such as electric vehicles and residential electric water heaters. Can these distributed energy resources (DERs) facilitate a smarter use of the power grid?

We are the market leader in technologies and services that power the green transition, we use our massive knowledge of the power market to build tools that accelerate the integration of the power system. Through forecasting where and when DERs are needed in the grid, we reduce the need for grid investment. Help us build the power system of the future and shape a sustainable tomorrow by joining us on this journey.
