BART DE BROUWER /// DIRECT OFFTAKE AGREEMENTS AND RISK MANAGEMENT - OUTSMART
We are OutSmart, since 2008 active in the renewable energy sector. We act as frontrunner in the energy transition. We are known and are being asked for our Power of Predictability: the ability to predict accurately, our pro-active and transparent way of collaboration and our innovative solutions. We work for investors, owners, fund managers of renewable production assets (like wind- and solar parks and biomass power plants) and for industrial off-takers of energy.
One of our key propositions is Facilitating Direct Offtake Agreements. There we realise the best power price for generators and offtakers of renewable energy. We enable this by matching all interests as transparent and predictable as possible. Consider us as a new type of intermediary with a strong focus on direct connecting generators and offtakers. (peer to peer).
The proposition "Facilitating Direct Offtake Agreements and Risk management" is the focus area of Mr. Bart de Brouwer.
