Q: How much scope are you getting to do stretching tasks at Renewco?
Despite our small size, Renewco covers such a wide range of markets and technologies (and we are always exploring more), it can be challenging to keep pace.  However the strength and energy of the team makes this challenge quite manageable.

Q: How did you enjoy working on the U.S. deal?
It is always satisfying successfully closing a deal but trebly so in this instance.  Not only is it a significant milestone for Renewco in terms of size, territory and funding but it has also resulted in what will be a meaningful and fruitful partnership with Beaufort Rosemary.

Q: What 3 words would you use to describe Renewco?
Ambitious, Agile & Proactive.

Daniel Perez

Q: What is the most interesting part of your role at Renewco?
I find really thrilling the way Renewco is thinking in the future of the energy sector and how we are putting together the foundations of the projects that will make that future come true.

Q: How do you connect with your colleagues given we are in different country and often remote working?
In the renewable energy sector, most of us were already used to work in international projects with co-workers in different countries, time zones or on-site during construction. Additionally, the pandemic has pushed everyone to remote working accelerating an existing trend, so working in Renewco with a great team of experienced colleagues is easy.

Q: What three words would you use to describe working at Renewco?
Integrity, experience, and future.
