Ypatios Moysiadis’ early years spent growing up in an industrial coal mining town in Northwest Greece had a profound effect on his career and helped embed a focus on sustainability in all his future ventures. Starting as a management consultant, he specialised in assisting pre-seed and growth phase start-ups and SMEs across different organisations. Since 2006, he capitalized on the legislative introduction of renewable energy incentives and expanded his scope into the development, construction and operation of renewable energy assets. This work lead to posts at major British and international organisations like Galliford Try Group, Grupotec, Foresight Group, BayWa r.e. and Greensolver across several EU countries. Today, Ypatios focuses on sustainability and innovation, mostly in the Greentech and Cleantech spaces. He is the BDD &UK Country Manager in Greensolver Group, responsible for all new markets, a visiting lecturer at City University Cass Business School, helps coach start-ups and invests in cleantech companies himself. He is also the Innovation Ambassador for the Solar Trade Association.
