High quality data drives efficient energy generation, distribution, and demand prediction with QR_ as your expert data management partner.

Decarbonisation of the global economy and current geo-political events are driving an unprecedented focus on new sources of more sustainable and more secure energy supply. This is driving innovation in renewable energy generation, energy storage and step changes in the efficiency of energy consumption.

The development of energy generation and management solutions involves advanced technology and software integration challenges. Many such programmes run late and over budget through different critical path items not being ready or misaligned through poor and incomplete specifications. The resulting impacts for solution providers are huge – escalating programme costs, delayed certification, postponed revenues, contract penalties, reputational damage and lost first-mover market opportunities.

Quick Release brings the enhanced data practices needed to support quicker certification, enhanced supply chain resilience and faster production ramp-ups. We are the best in the world at doing this and will be your expert partner that will bring order to your data and processes and help you deliver your solutions faster, more efficiently and with less risk – enabling you to realise your full potential as a leader in the sustainable energy solutions market.
