Jacek Gromadzki joins Clir as Renewable Science Team Manager to advance innovative applications of optimization software

Clir Renewables, the leading provider of performance assessment software for wind energy, has announced the hire of Jacek Gromadzki, formerly of Schneider Electric, Azure Dynamics, and Solectria, as Renewable Science Team Leader to drive further development of applications for its optimization platform in addition to supporting Clir’s progression in the solar market.

Jacek brings a wealth of experience across different sectors of clean technology, and, prior to joining Clir, worked at Schneider Electric Solar Inverters for six years – most recently leading the development and management of predictive models and analytics for solar assets. Before joining Schneider Electric, Jacek held key roles in electric and hybrid vehicle design and simulation at Azure Dynamics and Solectria.

By harnessing Jacek’s experience to date, Clir aims to enhance the offering it provides to the wider renewable energy industry, further enabling clean energy investors and asset owners to ensure sustained returns in the longer term.

Clir’s software uses machine learning to analyze data from the asset in context of its environment, providing owners a detailed understanding of what is causing underperformance and avenues for optimization. By identifying and rectifying often-overlooked causes of underperformance, owners have been able to increase annual energy production by up to 5%.

Gareth Brown, CEO, Clir commented: “Across the industry, renewable asset owners routinely leave millions of dollars on the table due to completely fixable underperformance issues. We cannot accept business as usual if the industry wants to retain the level of investment it has seen in recent years.”

“As we look to expand the limits of what can be optimized in the renewables industry, we are delighted to announce Jacek is joining us, given his wide-ranging and in-depth expertise of driving innovation and efficiency across the solar sector.”

Commenting on his appointment, Jacek Gromadzki said: “Clir is at the forefront of giving not only the renewables industry, but their investors, a greater understanding of how their assets are performing, and what they can do about it.”

“Clir’s platform has already been instrumental in informing decisions around M&A, retrofitting, repowering, and lifetime extension across 6GW of onboarded assets. I look forward to driving new applications of the software to find solutions to what seem to be insurmountable challenges across the industry.”
