With solar power being the largest renewable energy sector in the world, we’ve built a specialist team of solar energy experts that can look at the potential and development of new solar sites and deliver your solar projects.
Part of this includes researching how much energy a site might generate, identifying the most appropriate technology to use and working with your engineer to build an efficient solar site. Our engineers also provide inspections to make sure that your solar site is working at its best. If it’s possible, they can also find ways to prolong an asset’s life.
We offer support and advice on the successful development of solar and energy storage projects, from early-stage feasibility analysis to repowering and the optimisation of existing asset performance.
Our team supports some of the largest transactions, projects and financiers in the industry but doesn’t overlook the unique needs of smaller projects and new entrants to the solar market. This includes assessing how much energy a site might generate using energy yield analysis; identifying the best technology to use at your project; and working with your engineers to design and build a high-performing solar site. Our engineers also carry out inspections to make sure that your solar site is working at its best. Where possible, we can also find ways to prolong your asset’s life.
Feasibility and permitting
Our team can identify suitable sites for solar development, taking into account the local solar resource as well as planning, grid and construction constraints. We can generate energy yield assessments with different module technology types and develop optimal site layouts for your site. Our in-house planning team have a track record of consenting over 90% of projects and can manage the entire permitting process.
Due diligence and strategic advisory
Our due diligence team provides services throughout the transaction cycle, from initial risk assessment and red flag reporting in early transaction stages through to detailed due diligence for credit-committee at the final bid stage or financial close.
We also provide ongoing lender’s technical advisory (LTA) services during construction and operations.
Our in-house Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE) model and competitor benchmark database can help you understand your assets’ viability in a competitive auction environment.
Our experienced construction team is on hand to provide project management, procurement support, owner’s engineering and construction management. This ensures that projects are on time, on budget and compliant.
Our in-house inspections team can perform site visits to assess construction quality, compile snagging lists for construction contractors to rectify and evaluate the health of older assets.
