What’s it all about?
I love when small start-ups emerge from accelarators and incubators and start playing with the big boys, engaging with Utilities and large corporates. A partnership increasingly happening and increasingly collaborative, with great results. Here Simon Bushell, CEO of Sympower shares his start-up journey, milestones and thoughts on 100% renewables and an electrified mobility future.
