Building the investment case and ensuring delivery for the next generation of renewable projects.
Although most renewable energies still require government sponsorship to compete with fossil fuels, global climate change, carbon emission targets and fluctuating oil prices are driving the support, development and demand for renewable energy.
Private sector funding is required for the volume of energy from renewables to grow. This funding is dependent on operators presenting a clear investment case and demonstrating the right conditions for new projects to take place.
A big part of creating the right conditions is ensuring there is a dependable supply chain with the capabilities to support the roll-out of a programme. Developing the right organisation of people with the skills and capability to deliver the programme of work is essential.
Perhaps most importantly, if a project is to achieve buy-in a renewable energy plant has to demonstrate competitive production costs compared to fossil and nuclear derived energy.
Meeting the challenges
We have extensive experience of renewables, including wave and solar power, on- and off-shore wind power and waste to energy. We’re involved in development and consent work, which can require surveys, design studies and front-end engineering studies.
We also project manage the installation of all infrastructure components and oversee operation and maintenance of assets. And when new technology needs to be trialled, we can project manage development of the test environment and process, establishing data collection strategies to inform decision-making.
While renewables are in their relative infancy compared to coal, gas and nuclear, we hold a solid base of data on renewables capital projects and we use this data to create detailed cost models and offer impartial advice to drive value.
