Site Identification & Feasibility Studies

Site Identification & Feasibility Studies

We want to select the best sites for power generation. To achieve this goal, we carry out a comprehensive resource assessment (by software and campaign measures) and production assessments. At feasibility stage, we also evaluate any potential environmental and social impacts and start identifying solutions for the land and the grid connection.

Environmental & Social Studies

Environmental & Social Studies

On our sites, we perform rigorous studies to understand the potential impacts of our projects on the environment and on the populations. Environmental & Social studies also include appropriate mitigation measures to minimize our impact and foster local development in a sustainable way.

Grid Connection Studies

Grid Connection Studies

Grid connection is key to the success of a renewable energy project. Due to the characteristics of renewable energy, any project requires a detailed assessment of the power infrastructure features at the substation where the plant can be connected.

Project Design

Project Design

From the start and throughout the different phases of development, our engineering team is involved on the plant design to optimize the power production according to the site constraints and according to the available sources and grid capacity.

Land Securing

Land Securing

Land is a key success factor for renewable energy development. Securing a plot of land involves different degrees of discussions with landowners, whether they are public or private, as well as with the local community to ensure public acceptance. It also entails to negotiate agreements (rents) for the land use.

Permitting

A project can become alive only if it complies with the local regulation. Permitting includes the obtention of licenses, permits and other authorizations with different authorities and regulatory bodies. The permitting process needs to start from the beginning of the project due to the potential delays in the application evaluation.

Permitting

Development also include:

  • Participation in Tenders/Auctions
  • Project Financing or Due Diligence
  • Offtaker negociations
  • For these specific activities, see Energy Producer page.
