Pacific Green has been active in China since 2017, but only this year has its Shanghai team grown beyond 50 people, providing customers with an array of specialist clean energy expertise across engineering, quality control, sustainability, procurement and finance.

The Shanghai team plays a vital role in maintaining Pacific Green’s access to the leading energy storage technologies available in the global market, enabling the business to work in partnership with major manufacturers to develop systems that meet the specific operational needs of its projects across the UK, Australia, Italy and Poland.

The strength of this local support network also gives Pacific Green a unique level of oversight into its supply chain, ensuring the highest possible standards of safety and quality control, and the timely delivery of project-critical equipment.

Over the next 9 months, the business plans a further 20 new hires in China as it builds a ‘Centre of Engineering & Procurement Excellence’ that will become its global hub for procurement and logistics – complementing the significant project financing and development expertise within the existing London and Melbourne offices.

“We’ve always taken a hands-on approach to our supply chain partnerships so as to ensure timely access to quality products, tailored to our needs” said Christo Hammes, Pacific Green’s Chief Operating Officer. “As more and more battery storage markets open up worldwide, it’s clear that the quicker we grow our Shanghai operations, the quicker we can expand our global portfolio of projects. But it’s not just about access to hardware. We cannot ignore the pivotal role that China now fulfils as a technology leader in battery energy storage, with an enviable commitment to R&D and an unrivalled pace of innovation. By also being in China, we’re able to plan for tomorrow’s technology today. Pacific Green has a long history of working in close partnership with leading Chinese clean technology and battery manufacturers, helping us to deliver projects that make a tangible difference across major global markets. As we invest in Shanghai as our Centre of Engineering & Procurement Excellence, we intend to bring the very best people into our team and continue fostering the global collaboration that’s needed to make a success of the energy transition.”
