At Blue Ribbon CleanTech, we consider Cleantech to be a holistic approach of all relevant processes in the value chain. Hereby, our core area of expertise is the efficient use of resources along the value chain, at the manufacturers in the field of innovative technologies and in the IT sector.
The Cleantech principle stands for the increase of efficiency or productivity of certain structures by implementing knowledge based products and simultaneously preserving resources as well as reducing costs and emissions. This is supported by the climate policy of the European Union, which aims at creating incentives to increase the electricity production from renewable resources. The goal is to generate 20 percent of the European, and even 30 percent of the German electricity from renewable energies in 2020.
Cleantech also means a more efficient use of existing resources and defines itself by a holistic view on the value chain. Due to the long and comprehensive experience of the Blue Ribbon CleanTech partners, we are able to integrate target-oriented measures along the entire value chain. This enables us to provide our customers with competent support in the implementation of complex corporate finance projects.
Solar power plants demonstrate a good example for the complexity of certain value creation chains: The acquisition process of a solar power plant can be a long and complex process, because it requires a multitude of concessions, licenses and site maps, and because several parties like initiators, land owners, project developers, authorities, electricity companies, grid operators and investors need to be included. Blue Ribbon CleanTech has the necessary experience and know how to identify and avert weak points at every stage of the value chain, and thus brings forward the success of every project in a sustainable way.
Contractors represent one of the most important parts of the value chain, as they are the link between suppliers on the one hand and the business market on the other hand. Climate change and the uncertain future of resource availability require a more efficient and more sustainable way of handling natural goods. Furthermore, sustainable actions guarantee a competitive advantage for producers, as consumers tend to demand and honor a responsible handling of resources. We believe that a holistic view of the value chain is the key to a sustainable company strategy. Typically however, only directly affecting influences in production and marketing processes are analyzed regarding weaknesses, but not the entire process. Blue Ribbon CleanTech offers an independent approach from the beginning to the end of the value chain – from inbound logistics to customer service.
Blue Ribbon CleanTech stands out inter alia for its ability to identify and implement disruptive technologies. While the IT development was considered to be a revolution during the 70s, it is clear by now that a new cycle of revolutionary technologies had started. Due to the finiteness of fossil fuels, renewable energies and energy efficiency will become an important element of these disruptive technologies. At this turning point the so called smart grid system will emerge to capture, analyze and refine the demand for energy of every consumer. However this can only be put into practice with the necessary technologies. With its extensive network and its diverse cooperation, the Blue Ribbon CleanTech team has access to different institutions, such as renowned university networks and inventors. We supoort and guide our clients at the search for new disruptive technologies and its implementations. Thus, we are able to approach the challenges and complex problems emerging from the energy cycle successfully, effectively, and with sustainable results.
Capacious IT systems are of increasing importance as they are necessary to implement previously mentioned disruptive technologies. Experts, For instance, agree that in the future IT and communication infrastructure will be bundled to only one, efficient service called ICT (Information- and Communication Technology). Simplifying the maintenance process on the one hand, and averting unnecessary capital lockup on the other hand, ICT can, especially in combination with smart metering, contribute to cost reduction and an efficient utilization of resources. The link between various market participants (e.g. infrastructure, data centre, costumers) can be an additional challenge. Blue Ribbon CleanTech supports its clients in cross-section-optimization. Thereby we help to discover new chances and to increase the competitive position sustainably.
