I’ve been privileged to work with Rupert and his team over the last few years and to see the evolution of his business, as the energy transition and in particular the evolution of battery energy storage has seen challenges and opportunities. Here Rupert and I discuss that journey and how he sees the sector continue to evolve over the coming years.

About Rupert Newland

Rupert founded Arenko in 2015 to build a world class energy storage business. He is on the company’s Board of Directors and is the Chief Executive Officer. Rupert leads the growth, strategy and direction of Arenko as well as having overall responsibility for the day to day activities. Prior to creating Arenko, Rupert spent seven years in corporate finance, funding and advising renewables and technology businesses and projects. Through Rupert’s leadership, Arenko is addressing a major commercial opportunity and market need which is fundamental to the long-term sustainability of our energy system and provides long term value to our customers and consumers.
