Best practices in identifying high performing renewable energy projects

The promise of a healthy investment return is driving the growth of renewable assets, but not every asset is meeting expectations.

The renewable energy market is poised for regional growth however financing remains a major barrier, mainly due to unidentified risks with respect individual markets. 

EPCs, IPPs and Financial institutions are increasingly required to reduce the uncertainty in resource and energy assessments in the ever dynamic renewable domain.

With Onshore wind showing year on year growth of 26% since 2014, China seems poised for regional leader with India poised to be next regional driver. Countries like Australia, Japan and Thailand developing slowly. Offshore target of 30 GW, 2020 focused in China with lower tariffs in discussion.

In contrast to investments in conventional electricity generation, investments in renewable energy sources (RES), such as wind and solar power, require large upfront investments, but low working/operating capital. Most investments are to be made upfront, before the system becomes operational. From an investor’s perspective, this means that the overall investment risks increase. To compensate for this risk, investors require a higher rate of return on their investments, leading to increased cost of capital for RES investments. 

The promise of a healthy investment return is driving the growth of RES. But not every asset is meeting expectations; underperforming systems are eating profits and it is crucial to have that covered with a knowledge partner in the renewables sector.
