About The Event
Speaker: Ypatios Moysiadis, Business Development Director & UK Country Manager, Greenssolver UK
The world is growing faster than ever before, generating opportunities for billions of people. This growth requires more energy, however it also demands that it is produced and delivered in sustainable ways with fewer emissions.
UK-based oil company BP reports that renewables will be the world’s main source of power within two decades and are expected to play a key role in the global energy system faster than any fuel in history. What does the future hold for solar?
Ypatios Moysiadis will tell us how big data can enable solar to lead the energy transition.
Attendees will hear the latest about:
- Current energy developments in Europe
- Why solar is driving the decentralisation of the energy networks - Moving towards Grid 2.0
- Key country market outlooks
- Renewables driven by corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)
- Role of big data and AI in energy management and transition
The event will take place on Tuesday, 26th November at 6:00pm at ESCP Europe's London Campus.
The talk will be followed by refreshments. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the speaker, faculty members, network with MSc in Energy Management participants and other like-minded people.How to register?

Ypatios Moysiadis’ early years spent growing up in an industrial coal mining town in Northwest Greece had a profound effect on his career and helped embed a focus on sustainability in all his future ventures.
Starting as a management consultant, he specialised in assisting pre-seed and growth phase start-ups and SMEs across different organisations. He capitalized on the legislative introduction of renewable energy incentives and expanded his scope into the development, construction and operation of renewable energy assets. This work lead to posts at major British and international organisations like Galliford Try Group, Grupotec, Foresight Group and BayWa r.e. across several EU countries.
Today, Ypatios focuses on sustainability and innovation, mostly in the Greentech and Cleantech spaces. He is a visiting lecturer at Cass Business School, helps coach start-ups and invests in cleantech companies himself.
