Presync provides strategic and technical advice on sustainability, local clean energy solutions, procurement of grid renewable electricity and climate adaptation.
Presync has recently facilitated nine retail renewable PPAs, all of which are now operational, with the first commencing in January 2019. The PPAs are performing as forecast, and we remain engaged with many of our customers monitoring ongoing performance, refining the agreements and assisting with further energy efficiency and other sustainability projects. We have multiple further retail PPA projects at various stages of gestation with more announcements imminent.
Presync was founded by Ben Waters and Hudson Worsley, who lead all customer projects personally. Ben is a recognised industry leader on renewable PPAs, and particularly on retail approaches to renewable procurement. Building on experience gained as GE Australia/NZ’s Commercial Director and Director Ecomagination, Ben chaired WWF’s Renewable Energy Buyers’ Forum from early 2015 until the advent of the Business Renewables Centre Australia, and has been a member of the BRC’s Technical Advisory Panel and Market Advisory Panel since their inception. Ben is co-author of BRC Australia’s Retail Renewable Energy PPA Guide and author of the WWF/City of Sydney report Helping Business – Pathways To Purchase Renewable Energy.
