Shownotes

Recently, SkySpecs partnered with Word About Wind to discuss some of the wider challenges the renewable energy market is facing. After a boardroom discussion about issues such as inflation, energy prices, long-term service contracts, and supply chain issues, we continue that conversation for this episode of Climate Chronicles.

We spoke with SkySpecs’ Chief Operating Officer, Ray O’Neill, and our VP of Product Management, John Harney. Ray and John are both founders of Horizon Finance (formerly Fincovi before being acquired by SkySpecs), so they share their perspectives on how technology can help asset owners manage their portfolios more effectively.

Key points:

  • Why technology like Horizon Finance is so important
  • Challenges for developers and asset owners  
  • Why a centralized workflow is needed for asset management
  • The needs of asset owners and developers
  • How tech can standardize data
  • Renewable investment trends in Europe and the US
  • What we can learn from other industries
  • Mistakes and common problems with asset management in the renewables space
  • Why you need automation to scale
  • Industry predictions
