The End of the Beginning
A famous English gentleman once said “This is not the end, this is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning” to describe the changing phase of a big war.
Now 65 years later, I – a non-famous Swede and much lesser of a gentleman - will use those same words to describe the phase of another monumental challenge. The fight against climate change. Most of the world now gets it. We have to make big changes. Any big change starts with self-awareness of what needs to change.
The next phase of fighting climate change will be to do so at scale. To industrialize all of the positive efforts going on around the world. In this context we at Greenbyte have been thinking about how to support our increasingly growing customer base by not making incremental changes but stepping up to the task in a big way. We have explored many different opportunities and decided that the best way to really make a difference is to join forces with a company we have both competed with and admired at the same time. That company is Power Factors.
Power Factors complements Greenbyte perfectly. They have a large presence in North America and come with a solar background. Greenbyte has a large presence in Europe and comes with a wind background. Together we truly complement each other and are set up to build a great company together. From day one we will be 250 professionals around the world who have spent many, many years building the future of the digital layer of energy.
To our knowledge, we will be the only company setup to be so focused on data within renewable energy for enterprise customers with a global presence.
On a personal note, I very much look forward to continuing the quest Fredrik, Oscar, Mats and I started ten years ago in a larger context, setup to create greater impact by utilizing data and software to make renewables produce better and more clean energy.
I’d like to end the beginning by looking back to the Greenbyte Musical that was created by a few Greenbyters during a Hackathon in 2018.
To all our customers who put your faith in us, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We will continue to support you and to learn from you in this new context.
