Our Business

The Future Current.

The market for investment in wind and other renewable energy has substantial potential:

  1. Energy security: provides power sources that don’t rely on imported fuel.
  2. Community contribution: creates green jobs and delivers other benefits to surrounding areas.
  3. Renewable energy investment: globally now far outpaces investment in fossil fuel plants.

Futhermore,the attractive characteristics of wind and solar investments (providing long term stable return), is expected to drive continued growth.

Our Mission

Our in-house expertise and skills, combined with decades of experience in the energy industry, allow us to deliver high-quality services and projects for renewables: onshore and offshore wind and solar PV.

Expertise at Every Stage

Developing an energy project is a complex undertaking that requires rigorous analysis, creative problem solving, and intense focus. The major stages of a development project can be divided into three main phases: Prospect Evaluation, Project Development & Finance, and Engineering & Construction.

Our Scientific Approach to Prospect Evaluation

When we evaluate a prospect, we look at the resource potential, the transmission capacity, the market opportunity, and the environmental factors.

Resource Potential

When we research the resource potential of a prospect, we use the most rigorous methods, the most powerful tools, and the most robust research staff. As our interest in a prospect grows, we begin an on-site meteorological data campaign to collect wind data. The on-site measurements are analyzed against the long-term wind climate in the region to better understand the true long-term wind resource for the project.

Transmission Capacity

When evaluating the transmission capacity, we make sure that any power we generate can be delivered to the electric utility or other customer. Our engineering team models the transmission grid in partnership with the local utility to minimize transmission risk.

Market Opportunity

It is essential that we understand the local energy market so we can ensure that demand for energy is sufficient to eliminate market risks for the life of the project. Our team of economists and financiers use sophisticated models to determine project bankability.

Environmental Factors

We need to know what kind of environmental impacts could compromise the integrity of the project. In addition to regulatory requirements, we study the land and wildlife at the site in order to avoid and minimize impacts. We use everything we learn to determine if a proposed facility is appropriate and feasible.


This process enables us to discover highly productive sites.

Innovative Project Development & Finance

When we are ready to pursue a prospect, we begin work on structuring the terms of the project with landowners, regulatory entities, power purchasers, and finance partners.

Landowners

Typically the project site is large enough that we must partner with multiple landowners. Our approach is to engage them with transparent communication that allows them to fully understand the project and its implications.

Regulatory Entities

We work with local regulatory entities to obtain permits and engage in creative problem solving around environmental impacts. This collaborative approach can lead to important technology innovations that significantly minimize negative impacts while optimizing availability and yield.

Power Purchasers

We use our industry expertise to structure favorable agreements with the top-rated creditworthy power purchasers in the local market. Our experience and our reputation make us a valuable partner.

Finance Partners

When we arrange the financing for the project, we combine our resources with those of our lenders and investors to make sure there is ample capital. The transformational partnership structure innovated by our finance team has become the dominant model used in the wind and solar energy sectors for over ten years.

Outstanding Engineering & Construction

Our project engineering and construction team has a long-standing record of bringing projects online on time and on budget. We make this happens through intense focus and a commitment to creating the best quality facility. We use top tier contractors and have developed a highly efficient and refined workflow. We are deeply experienced at structuring agreements with our contractors to provide a high standard of safety and security to our projects.
