Max and Paul worked closely together at Long Harbour from 2014 to 2018, with a mandate to source opportunities in a dynamic Energy Sector.   We have appraised various projects across multiple technologies and jurisdictions in Europe, Asia and the Americas but developed a specific focus on energy storage and flexible generation.

We have developed a thorough understanding of the technical capabilities of pumped storage hydro and battery energy storage systems as well as the range of available revenue strategies in the GB market.  We are now seeking to work with developers, investors and equipment suppliers to optimise energy storage projects through the REMAP platform.
