Invest with Confidence

Investing in a renewable energy project or portfolio is a complex endeavor that requires an extensive evaluation effort. Understanding the inherent technical risks of a project is a critical facet of this effort, and the conclusions of this evaluation will allow you to ultimately decide if the return is worth the risk. From energy resource and technology reviews, to balance of plant and O&M reviews, we leverage our combined 55+ years and 200 GW of experience on every wind and solar project we evaluate. We are pioneers and industry leaders in technical consulting and have played an active role in many of the world’s most important and groundbreaking renewable energy projects. This experience is important, but equally core to our company is our reliability. Our engineers work in lockstep with you and maintain regular communication as we evaluate your project. With millions of dollars on the line, you can’t afford to have questions go unanswered. With offices around the globe, and experience in over 100 countries, we bring the expertise, track record and reliability that will allow you to invest with confidence.
