Ypatios started as a management consultant, specialising 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 led 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, a visiting lecturer at City University Cass Business School, helps coach start-ups and invests in cleantech companies himself. He is also the Vice-Chair in the O&M Task Force for Solar Power Europe and the Innovation Ambassador for the Solar Trade Association.
