Why K2 Management?
Here are some reasons to choose K2 Management, when developing, lending or investing in an energy project.
Global knowledge, localised expertise
Offering specialist, localised services and expert advisory as our clients' key differentiator
Competitive support across engineering, planning, project management and due diligence
Who are we?
K2 Management is an independent renewable energy consultancy with global expertise and specialist local knowledge. We help clients to develop and operate leading energy projects with the best possible return on investment.
Our vision is to be a leading engineering and management consultancy by delivering sustainable energy project solutions globally.
We do that by delivering a wide range of services within engineering, planning, management and due diligence, spanning the entire value chain of an energy project.
K2 Management is 100% independent - we are not controlled or supported by any other player in the industry, so we give truly impartial advice.
We don't certify technology, which means that we won't ever undertake due diligence on a project that we previously certified from a technology standpoint (this is not true with others in the market). This way, we can be truly impartial and 100% independent.
The company is fully owned by the two founding partners, Lars K. Hammershøj and Per K. Melgaard, who both have had a long and successful career supporting energy project development and construction.
Our consultants are our most valuable assets and the decades of practical experience in the energy sector, working for developers, manufacturers, or balance of plant service providers gives our team whole-market experience and a unique insight into the way projects work from a variety of standpoints.
With offices on five continents and over 175 staff, K2 Management operates a cross-border approach to projects to provide clients with the right team and setup and the best possible results, regardless of the project’s location.
Each assignment requires a different combination of skills, expertise and time so clients benefit from local knowledge and the practical expertise of the international team.
We see what others might overlook
Get our insights in your projects
Decades of hands-on experience gives our people the ability to see more value and spot unexpected risks in your energy projects.
Our view of projects is multi-dimensional, helping our clients gain a holistic perspective. We have real examples of helping our clients to see things that others may have overlooked.
To us, setting up of a project, negotiating better contractual terms and conditions, reducing installation times, removing risks and avoiding unexpected costs are all part of one comprehensive picture that adds up to maximum power output and substantial long-term revenue gains.
We advise on the whole project lifecycle
We support you in the entire value chain
We deliver a wide range of services within engineering, planning, project management, and due diligence spanning the entire value chain of an energy project from the earliest phase of development through to asset management.
Our duty is to be entirely client-focused
We believe it is our duty to be 100 % client-focused, dedicated and committed in our role as owner’s, buyer’s or lender’s advisor.
Our goal is to support clients
Our ultimate goal is to support the successful completion of clients’ projects on time, on spec, and on budget and our support will directly correlate to more profit, reduced risk, and/or time saved.
We are the trusted advisor
Building trust, adding value as the trusted advisor
Our industry-leading experts have a strong focus on client and case assessment. We help our clients to fully recognise and understand the extent of their business challenges before providing our expert consultancy.
Our advisors operate alongside a framework of eight core competencies, working to find new opportunities and unlock value for our clients at every stage of their project.
Both transparent and responsive, we ensure that our consultancy places an honest and collaborative partnership at the very heart of our work with every client, regardless of our role.
We've been around for over 15 years and a lot has happened since we began in 2007.
