Podcast: Batteries for hire with Peter Paul van Voorst tot Voorst

The flexibility of batteries goes beyond their ability to be deployed at short notice. Their compact and scalable nature means they can be easily transported to areas of temporary demand. Where a diesel generator would traditionally be used - batteries are set to take their place.

Skoon is bridging the gap between owners of mobile clean energy sources and projects in need of temporary demand. In this episode, Quentin talks to Skoon’s CEO, Peter Paul van Voorst tot Voorst. Over the conversation, they discuss:

  • How Skoon have addressed some of the challenges that come with building a marketplace.
  • The process of stimulating both sides of the marketplace to balance supply and demand.
  • Why providing additional value points is a vital strategy to increase the value of the platform.
  • The ways in which mobile batteries can support grid services during periods of congestion.
  • And much, much more!
