Robert Ogden

Founder and CEO

I founded Renewable Exchange with a mission to provide transparency, fairness and simplicity to transacting renewable electricity. For too long generators in the UK had been at an informational disadvantage when negotiating PPAs, not knowing what the wholesale electricity price was or the value of their embedded benefits or certificates. I’m so proud of the platform Renewable Exchange provides to independent generators to connect with the whole of the market, execute instantaneous PPAs and thoroughly understand the value of their electricity.

Day-to-day, I look after our company strategy, ensuring that everything we do and everything we are drives us further towards our mission and increases the value that generators receive for their renewable electricity.


Michal Zglinski

CTO

I’ve been working in the energy sector since 2016. I joined Renewable Exchange and built our online platform, working with Robert, the CEO, to bring the vision to life. As the CTO, I manage the tech team and I am responsible for the company’s technological strategy and development. Working in tech within a start-up is demanding but very rewarding. There’s always more to learn and discover in the quickly growing realm of computer programming. Within Renewable Exchange, we continue to innovate and so I always look for ways of implementing new and exciting features to what we already offer, creating a complete suite of solutions for renewable energy generators.

In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, especially volleyball and badminton.


Oliver Hunt

Head of Renewables

I joined Renewable Exchange in 2017, before the launch of our online platform, and I initially managed ROC and REGO agreement optimisations. Over the years, as the company kept on growing, I’ve held various roles (one of the perks of joining a start-up!), but the fundamentals of what I do have never changed: I focus on building relationships with industry professionals and delivering a high-quality service to all counterparties we deal with while always learning more about the UK energy markets.

I’m passionate about sustainability and climate change, and since joining Renewable Exchange it has been my ambition to help enable a completely subsidy-free project to be developed (with the PPA being an essential part in lieu of additional government support). I’m very proud to have now passed that milestone with multiple PPAs secured for both solar and wind new build sites.

In my spare time I enjoy running, bouldering and pretty much any outdoor activity. I’m also a keen NFL fan.


Victoria Kalina

Marketing Manager

I’ve been interested in renewables ever since I was a kid. I’ve been working in the energy sector for the past 7 years in various roles from sales to marketing. At Renewable Exchange, I am responsible for our brand development and all that comes with it, including our media presence, marketing collateral and public relations. I believe in a customer-centric approach to marketing and really enjoy working with our Sales and Product teams to ensure our services provide the very best user experience on every level.

Outside of work, I love to travel; but when I’m not out and about you could probably find me in the kitchen baking something sweet.


Adam Round

Full Stack Developer

My role is to maintain and improve the Renewable Exchange platform. I work on both the front-end and back-end where we continually innovate so my role is always interesting. The friendly culture makes it a great place to work. We regularly collaborate with the sales and marketing departments to collect feedback and improve the platform.

As a remote worker, in my spare time I like to explore the new city I’m living in and learn foreign languages.


Jess Dickenson

Business Support Administrator

I joined Renewable Exchange in 2020 new to the energy industry as a Sales Support Administrator. I soon found a passion for renewables and quickly progressed to manage my own portfolio of clients, supporting generators to understand the value of their electricity.

Building on my experience in sales, I progressed into a Business Support Administrator role where I engage with all departments within the business to ensure cohesion and smooth running of the company. This is a multi-faceted role which encompasses aspects of all business operations from customer relations to performance reporting.

One of my focus areas is ensuring our platform is user-friendly. I identify any sticking areas within it and find ways to improve our offering for the benefit of both the customers and our Commercial Team. Additionally, I maintain relationships with our Partners and am the first point of contact for any issues. I also actively work behind the scenes analysing processes to enhance productivity across the business. Last but not least, I manage our office: making sure we are all safe and comfortable (and ensuring we always have the best coffee for everyone to enjoy!). A great bonus to my role is that I also get to plan fun activity days for the team – strengthening our relationships and creating a fantastic work environment for everyone.

Outside of work I like to spend my time playing team sports, particularly netball and tag rugby.


Matt Haydon

PPA Executive

I joined Renewable Exchange because I am passionate about the energy transition and I wanted to work for a company encouraging the growth of renewable energy.

As a PPA Executive, I manage a portfolio of new and existing accounts and assist my clients with the process of monitoring forecasts and tendering via the platform. I consult with these clients regarding power market conditions and developments, providing context and enabling generators to make informed decisions on the optimal time to tender for their PPA renewals.

Outside of work, I’m an avid cyclist (road and MTB) and huge motorsport fan. I’m also a natural wine enthusiast, and always happy to offer some recommendations!


Vivian Baliozian

PPA Executive

I joined Renewable Exchange to play a bigger part in decarbonizing the economy. I am passionate about building my career within the industry and increasing my contribution in the fight against climate change. My aim is to inspire the younger generations to do the same!

As a PPA Executive, I am responsible for helping generators achieve the best possible results for their PPA. My responsibilities include managing my own portfolio of clients, assisting in the running of tenders, and ensuring all processes run smoothly for everyone involved.

Outside of work, you may find me on the volleyball court, in the kitchen making fresh pasta, or at a gig with friends.


Laura Yandall

PPA Executive

When I joined Renewable Exchange, I felt inspired by the wealth of knowledge and opportunities within the industry. I am passionate about contributing to a more sustainable economy and believe that the potential for the future within the industry is something we should all be excited about!

In my role I support independent renewable generators to truly understand the value of their electricity and get the best price for it. I’m very happy to be on this journey helping renewables thrive in the UK and beyond.

I love to travel to new places and learn about different cultures. I have recently returned to the UK from Aotearoa New Zealand where I lived for the last few years. If you haven’t visited, go… (and offset your carbon emission impact from the flight!)
