Mainstream Renewable Power, the global wind and solar company, has appointed Patrick Warren as Chief Technology Officer, to spearhead the end-to-end digitalisation that will help accelerate Mainstream’s journey to becoming a renewable energy major.
Mainstream has already deployed digital solutions for energy analysis, hybrid projects and performance analytics. Patrick will lead a renewed digitalisation programme that covers all of Mainstream’s technical functions, including procurement, engineering, and information systems. Commercially, this will help Mainstream unlock smarter, more cost-efficient investment opportunities at greater speed. Operationally, increased digitalisation will keep wind and solar assets performing at higher levels for longer – and therefore further reduce emissions.
Patrick Warren said, “I am excited to be leading Mainstream’s digitalisation initiatives, and the creation of this new role indicates our focus on the crucial and transformative role of technology in the energy transition. In my experience at the company, I’ve seen how technical expertise and data can make us more competitive, and so I am very happy to be leading this new, end-to-end programme.”
