"Lucy and Emad bring considerable experience to the team at this pivotal time of growth," said CEO and managing director Ben Hutt.
"Their strategic and specific knowledge will help further expand our capabilities and growth opportunities at this time of rapid change within the energy industry. Their roles will be instrumental in scaling the business using real time data science and predictability algorithms to trade energy in a decentralised market.
"Approximately 50,000 residential batteries at an average size of 10kWh are roughly the same kind of energy value at a short duration as a small coal-fired power station. It is now more inevitable that coal-fired power stations will become defunct and our mission is to control and orchestrate enough distributed storage in 10 different markets that we can effectively replace the capacity of a coal-fired power station in each market by 2023."
