Strong project fundamentals and an understanding of how a project fits within a portfolio of opportunities provide the team commitment and clarity needed to both secure the resources required to develop a renewable
energy project and to persevere through the process. Properly establishing the following project fundamental elements will result in decisions to move the project forward or not. The five elements of project fundamentals are:
Baseline: We analyse the current situation for the site, its energy supply, and identify specific objectives.
Economics: We analyse total costs of acquiring energy from existing sources and from proposed sources.
Policy: We examine national and local legal frameworks and regulatory policy environments for barriers; address barriers prior to expending significant resources.
Technology: We assess available renewable resources and the commercially available conversion technologies.
Once strong project fundamentals have been defined for a infrastructure and capital project, the next step is project development. The seven elements to organize and evaluate the risks
and investment decisions required in the project development phase include:
Site: We identify the physical location for the physical assets of a project, including property rights, length of tenure, terms and conditions, etc.
Resource: We characterize and understand the renewable resource or asset being considered.
Off-take: We establish and secure by contract the buyer of both the energy and any other characteristics of output (e.g. renewable energy credits).
Permits: We identify and obtain all permits necessary for project construction and operation.
Technology: We invest in engineering design, equipment selection, and procurement activities of the technology chosen in BEPTC activities.
Team: We assemble a fully qualified team that addresses all business, technical, financial, legal, and operational aspects.
Capital: We attract financial resources necessary for final development, construction, commissioning, and initial operations.
