A robust solar project starts with strong development and planning.
Putting in the hard work on the business case and maximizing predicted resource expectations at an early stage will pay off further down the line.
By considering a longer project lifetime up front, project owners can be better prepared to navigate opportunities to improve IRR as they come up. Whether that’s improvements in technology or improved OpEx strategy.

The project is commissioned; the assets are generating power - now what?
Once a project is operational, it’s easy to think that the hard part is over and take the foot off the gas.
But in reality, this is the time that owners should be looking at ways to squeeze more value from their investment.
Owners should be asking:
- How can I minimize down time?
- How can I reduce OpEx costs?
- How can I make my solar project attractive for refinancing?
From operational analysis to asset management, these questions can be answered, and project performance optimized through our independent advice.
Getting the technicalities right can be the difference between an average and well-performing project.
Whether you’re buying, selling or developing a solar project, detailed evaluation will give a clear picture of the project - both technically and financially.
Our advisory expertise spans yield analysis, risk management, due diligence, technical advisory and financial services - all of which come together to deliver better energy projects.
