As the energy transition is currently held back by limited transport capacity and grid congestion, Withthegrid has developed an exciting and tailormade solution meeting the newly designed transport agreements (to be) rolled out by the grid operators.”

René Raaijmakers

Experienced entrepreneur and a board member in large energy and maritime corporations, René recently built and led the sustainable energy company Groendus. René commented about his new role:

“The energy transition is gaining momentum and the future energy system will be highly digitalized. Withthegrid’s data driven solutions will play an essential role in this new energy system and their independent positioning is unique. The coming years until 2030 will be crucial to deliver on the European ambitions, hence, I’m excited to support Withthegrid on their journey to become a key cleantech solution provider in this market.”

Paul Mignot, Founder & CEO of Withthegrid, expressed his enthusiasm for the board’s expansion:

Their experience, network, and values align perfectly with Withthegrid’s ambitions to build a European digital backbone for the energy grid.”
