Navigate infrastructure challenges

Energy infrastructure build-out is challenging and complex, requiring careful analysis of generation, transmission and distribution, and low-carbon fuel delivery and storage needs. We help utilities, developers, owners and investors make sound investments by rethinking every aspect of energy investment needed to meet clean energy goals, integrate non-traditional resources, and stay ahead of emerging reliability and resilience challenges. From developing strategies to reduce potential stranded costs to creating market entry strategies for investments in hydrogen and biofuels, our team provides the guidance to help navigate infrastructure challenges.

Secure the proper financing

To enable successful financings, developers need lenders, investors, and tax equity providers to fully understand projected performance, revenues, and risks. We evaluate an asset’s technology, market value, and potential for return, reviewing all related commercial agreements, designs, site studies, permits, and technical inputs. We are a trustworthy and bankable consultant offering expertise across a broad set of domains and service areas, including independent engineering, power markets, and transmission considerations.
