The project is commissioned; the assets are generating power - now what?
The project build and live date is only just the beginning. Once operational, owners must begin to establish how to generate more value from their investment.
To achieve the greatest value, owners should be asking:
- How can I minimize downtime?
- How can I tweak misalignment to improve performance?
- How can I maximise technology advancements throughout a project's 25+ years of operational life?
- Why are aspects of my project underperforming and how can I proactively tackle these issues?
We provide independent expert analysis and industry-leading asset management advice to projects situated across the globe. Learn more about how you can optimize performance via the above drop down menu.

As the risk of failing to accredit increases, many buyers are sensibly choosing to delay investment until projects are up and running.
While operational assets are not subject to the same licensing, construction and commissioning risks as pre-construction projects, they do still present significant pitfalls related to long-term energy yield.
We regularly conduct operational analysis that uncovers flawed projections, resulting in revenue over-estimates of hundreds of thousands of pounds per year.
Likewise, we sometimes see the reverse which can present valuation opportunities.
