For Windcredible’s CEO, Filipe Fernandes, this pilot project is fundamental for the development of the startup for several reasons. “With this joint pilot between Galp and CM Matosinhos, we can test our product in a hybrid and distributed renewable energy production scenario. The combination of small-scale wind and solar generation makes it possible to overcome the individual limitations of the two technologies. We believe these well-dimensioned systems can transform a mere energy consumer into a producer-consumer. Consequently, we see a significant reduction in the cost and dependence on grid power. The results of this pilot will allow us to validate our technology and the feasibility of the business model, which can be replicated in other applications in Matosinhos.
