Confident investing requires a thorough, multi-dimensional understanding of prospective technologies. Due diligence for utilities, developers, independent power producers, and other project stakeholders must help them thoroughly grasp the potential risks of new technologies to support fully informed decision-making. ICF believes the trend in independent engineering (IE) services toward watered-down, non-committal assessments is a move in the wrong direction. For utilities, developers, and other stakeholders participating in ever more complex and uncertain market terrains, we present due diligence with exacting legitimacy.
ICF brings more to IE than a traditional engineering perspective. With full-service marketing, forecasting, and environmental regulatory compliance specialists available for each project, we can look at due diligence from contractual, technological, environmental, and performance perspectives. We have the experience to help clients navigate complex technology alternatives—from traditional technologies to renewables such as biofuels, solar, wind, biomass, waste-to-energy, and hydro power—analyzing budgetary risk and vetting cost-benefit projections for 25 years in the future.
When project participants merge or acquire new assets, they need operating data that validates the integrity of their decisions for internal and external stakeholders. At ICF, we have the in-house expertise to make sure these decisions withstand the most intense scrutiny.
