Founder's Message 

"Arbutus was founded with a belief that there was a need for a specialist technical consulting firm bridging the gap between technology, industry and end customers. For example, setting up a utility-scale solar PV power plant requires a tremendous amount of skilful coordination between various technology, design, engineering, installation and managerial elements. We have been focused on building a world-class multi-disciplinary team capable of understanding client requirements globally and translating them into project deliverables. We envisage a future driven mainly by clean and renewable energy, predominantly solar. Some of our areas of focus are solar PV, energy storage and electric mobility sector and we have been rewarded with the trust of over 250 clients served since 2005."
