Funding the renewable future
Flexens is a project development company founded in the Åland Islands. The company develops and implements cost-effective, innovative, flexible energy systems to support the transition to renewable energy.
Flexens partners with international and local actors, helping them with project initiation and financing structures, including building a solid business modeland supporting implementation.
The transition to renewable energy can be cost-prohibitive. In addition, untested technologies bring the risk of in-stability to the grid, making utilities hesitant to move quickly. More and more investors and entrepreneurs have been stepping into the role of developer for such projects, willing to put their capita lat risk in order to be a part of creating a modern, intelligent and distributed grid.
Within the subcategory of private developers, there are start-ups like Flexens, investment arms of energy companies, and independent entrepreneurs like farmers who are converting their fields to wind or solar farms.
The benefits of working with Flexens is that they take an ecosystem approach, providing assistance with energy system study and design. Flexens claims to have expertise in hydrogen, storage grid optimisation, renewable transportation, heating, cooling, storage, and other sectors.
One hurdle to their success could be this ambition to encompass a broad range of technologies.
