Renewable Projects in non-subsidized markets

What is our philosophy being a full-stack service provider?

Synchronizing all stakeholder is key to success

Despite the turbulences caused by Covid 19, corporate electricity consumers must continue the fulfillment of their climate targets.

C&Is need to strive for net zero-emission targets and should be aware that these targets are monitored by their stakeholders. A shortcoming can create not only reputational risk but also an economic risk.

These targets need to be articulated and monitored in a climate strategy.
