Interim Manager Origination and Business Development (3 days per week)


Priogen is an innovative trading company, growing exponentially with the Energy Transition. To bolster growth, the leadership team decided to complement their trading activities with an origination department. 

We were asked to provide a ‘jump start’ leveraging our 20+ years of experience. We built the team and defined the ‘ways of working’ related to deal structure & proposition, execution & risk management, operational handling etc. 

Established profitable portfolio, consisting of renewable PPA’s, options and trading services, with a client base in Benelux and Germany.
Business Models for Flexibility Harvesting

Leading Distribution Company (the Netherlands, more than 1 billion turnover)

The Energy Transition poses increased pressure on Distribution Grids. Harvesting of flexibility provides opportunities to limit cost increases and/or decrease connection times. 

We provided a quantitative and qualitative analysis of various potential business models to encourage flexibility, leveraging our technical and commercial expertise.

Prioritization of most viable “flexibility initiatives”.
Establishing “Best Practice” Energy Contracting 
Major Energy Consumer (1% of Dutch Power consumption)

Client objective was to sharpen their energy procurement strategy, triggered by growing volumes, ending of historical contracts and organizational changes. 

We provided an overview of risks & opportunities of various purchasing strategies including peer to peer comparison. In parallel, the risk profile of client was defined. 

Revised strategy, tailored to capabilities of the team within the risk profile approved by the Board.
Due Diligence 
Strategic Investor

The client is an established investor in ‘advanced start-ups and start-through companies in the energy transition space’. They get offered a wide range of investment opportunities.  To assess investment opportunities, they cooperate with thought leaders like us.

We assess the I.M. and conduct challenge sessions with the Management Team of the target company. Where appropriate, we also talk to clients of the target company. We summarize our findings for Client, including a ‘green flag/orange flag/red flag’ overview.
