Turning vision into reality
We’re currently working on a volunteer basis as a WWOOF host, so if you’re interested to spend some of the summer with us, you can contact us through our profile. But as we grow, we’re going to need the best to join us so keep an eye out for vacancies. We do not accept unsolicited CVs at this time.
Behind the scenes
Bringing it all together
Take a lifelong entrepreneur with a career’s worth of experience in bioenergy and sustainable agriculture and combine her with an industrial engineer who has worked with reforming old farm houses and designing industrial scale waste-to-energy and what do you get? PlanetEnergy, of course!
Diversity of thought and experience
Creating EnergyCommunities and EnergyIslands
You need more than pure engineering skills to design EnergyCommunities and EnergyIslands. You need systems design thinking, decades worth of professional networks across all possible realms of renewable energy, the capacity to think holistically and to engage with partners from communities to board rooms. And that’s what we’ve done with PlanetEnergy to ensure you get the best of all worlds and not “just” engineers.
