UGE: Outsourcing cell site energy
UGE announces the Levelised Energy Agreement, a new business model for the outsourcing of cell site energy
Nick Blitterswyk grew up in a nature reserve, where his parents were caretakers, so whilst working in the finance industry, he sought a new challenge with a focus on sustainability. Nick founded Urban Green Energy (UGE) in 2008, with an initial focus on distributed hybrid energy solutions, growing UGE to become market leaders in small wind by 2012, which they’ve used as a launching pad for a focus on telecoms.
TowerXchange spoke to Nick and his colleague David Droz, an engineer with experience of liaising between engineering, sales and R&D. David is spearheading UGE’s entry into the telecoms market.
