Wattstor, the fast-growing pioneer in energy management systems in the renewable generation, electric vehicle charge points and energy storage space, is delighted to appoint James Belcher as Chief Product Officer.
James will be responsible for overseeing the product development strategy, scaling the product offering to boost business growth, and, most essentially, managing the product portfolio to ensure best possible outcomes for Wattstor’s customers and partners.
James joins from an interim role at Energy Systems Catapult where he delivered their 2021 (and beyond) product strategy. This represents just a small part of James’ 15 year career portfolio in the energy sector, which includes building the market-disrupting BoilerIQ services innovation for Centrica and launching the wider “Hive” product suite in North America. He also enjoyed a significant stint consulting for Toshiba’s European Connected Home venture. His experience in delivering market-leading product strategy, creating customer-centric product experiences, product process implementation and team leadership is exemplary.
Belcher commented on his recent appointment, “It has become clear to me in my previous roles how critical the role of behind the meter storage and flexibility is in achieving carbon neutrality and creating value for end users. With this in mind I am delighted to join the team at Wattstor, an organisation that has one of the most advanced energy management systems available on the market and very ambitious plans for the future!”
Stephan Marty, CEO at Wattstor commented, “We are very excited to have James joining our management team. His experience in the sector and particularly his strong focus on customer input and feedback into product development fits very nicely with the way we work and our values. James will be leading our continuing development of EMS functionality and will in particular be focussing on further implementing dynamic tariffs into our EMS optimisation engine – an addition that will greatly improve the business case for SMEs using a combination of RES, EV charge points and battery technology on their sites.”
