Technical Advisory Services

As an industry leader in operational assessments, we have developed and refined high quality methodologies for providing long term energy forecasts for operational wind and solar plants. By using operational data, we can estimate future energy production more accurately than by using standard pre-construction methods alone. For investors, we provide bankable energy production reports based on operational data. These assessments provide a clear indication of normal operation and long-term energy projections with lower uncertainty than preconstruction assessments.
