Our climate-tech team has attracted an exceptionally talented, respected and highly knowledgeable go-to-market strategist to foster successful growth ambitions whilst empowering energy production stakeholders to gain a competitive advantage.
For the past 15 years, Johannes Holdø has supported several high-profile software businesses and has contributed to top-line growth in the renewable energy and cleantech space whilst honing in on change management expertise. For instance, in Norway he supported the ‘Bloomberg for energy traders and producers’, also known as Wattsight, to become the European market leader, and championed clean-tech market leader Volue, from concept to listing at Oslo Stock Exchange.
Due to his commercial background and in-depth understanding of the energy industry overall, Johannes will focus on supporting our start-up to achieve excellence in business generation processes and product market fit…
“High volatility, climate change, and taxation put great pressure on hydropower producers. Better data in real-time is needed to optimally and profitably manage risks in this market environment. Wegaw has developed a breakthrough product that can take hydro optimization to a new level. I look forward to working with Wegaw and its customers to unlock this untapped potential.”
This new relationship was introduced through the Katapult Climate Accelerator Program, powered by Lundin Foundation, of which Wegaw was 1 of 8 participants in 2021 and for which Johannes is a mentor. With what promises to be an invaluable combination of expertise and shared values, our renewable energy optimization pioneers are looking forward to accelerating global expansion by working closely with Johannes for the Nordic region in particular.
“We are incredibly excited to have Johannes join our Advisory Board. Wegaw aims to transform the energy industry through digitalization, by offering operators and traders the ability to be more efficient, financially stable and climate resilient. The aim is to ensure energy production forecasting is as error-free and accurate as possible through our unique geospatial data insights. With Johannes’ digital transformation and extensive energy industry insights, our team capabilities are strengthened to ultimately offer a tailored made product to the energy industry for greater asset optimization and climate resilience across the industry.”
There is a real need across the energy industry to balance short term power generation needs and long-term forecasting strategies. our fusion of geospatial data and AI with rainfall-runoff simulations and other hydrological models are enabling hydropower companies to better anticipate production levels in the long-term and maximise trading opportunities when compared to original budgets. Whilst avoiding penalties and potentially closing the gap in previously lost potential revenues, our growing portfolio of innovatively minded energy industry clients are utilizing the insights from our near real-time, industry endorsed highly accurate products to mitigate financial risk and boost climate resilience.
This new collaboration strengthens Wegaw’s position to continue to amplify climate monitoring and data accuracy success for renewable energy stakeholders who are up against harder to forecast environmental variables and severe market conditions.
