Renewable energy systems and software provider Evergen has hired Lucy Carpinelli as a solution architect and Emad Nashed as a senior software engineer.

"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."

Carpinelli has ten years' experience in the energy sector, working with utilities and other commodity trading businesses, implementing new systems and managing business change.

She joins Evergen from consulting firm Baringa Partners, working with utilities in Europe, Singapore and Australia. She previously worked as a senior consultant at FIS, as a consultant at Accenture, and as a research assistant at the CSIRO.

Carpinelli holds a BSc in chemistry from the University of Melbourne, and an MPhil in organic chemistry from the ANU.

"Right now in energy it's clear that innovation is happening behind the meter and that's exactly where Evergen can create value," she said. "My role is to develop the most robust and practical energy trading solutions for distributed energy resources, for local and international markets, now and in the future."

Nashed has over 15 years of experience in software development, most recently as an architect/developer with Ladbrokes Australia.
