Engineering, startup, consultancy, and scale-up experience…

The Team at Hydrologiq


Aran Bates

As an engineer, Aran’s experience sits at the intersection of technical development, business, and strategy gained through 8 years of innovation consulting. He has spent the last two and a half years evaluating and studying the applicability of hydrogen on our energy systems, he knows where it can and can’t work as an energy solution.

Previously Aran has founded his own digital start-up (growing it into an operating business, bootstrapped, within a year); launched new ventures inside of existing multinational businesses (e.g. designed and lead all aspects of the physical product and manufacturing for Holland and Barret’s Healthbox offering, taking it from pure paper idea to live product in market MVP in 3 months); and advised many of the world’s largest corporates on innovation, including acting as the direct advisor and coach to the global Head of Innovation for Rolls Royce Aerospace.


Benjamin Lindley

Ben is a serial entrepreneur with 8 years of entrepreneurial and scale-up experience under his belt. He has a specialism in operations and marketing. While most entrepreneurial experiences have been outside of clean tech, he entered the industry in October 2018 to lead the retail operations for Supercharged Energy, a New Zealand based solar and energy start-up.

As retail manager, he helped scale Supercharged, designing and implementing processes to control customer acquisition, sales and fulfilment, bringing stability as the business transitioned to rapid growth. This involved creating online customer service solutions and CRM-integrated sales funnels, while managing industry stakeholders and an international team with offices in New Zealand and Fiji.
