Understanding risk for wind, solar, wave and tidal projects.
The financial risks associated with renewable energy project investments differ based on numerous factors including location, environment and the technology used. In order to manage risk, stakeholders need the best possible understanding of how and where risks manifest. A renewable energy project could face uncertainty in areas such as inadequate energy mapping, restrictive planning conditions, unproven technologies, poorly understood risk profiles in new supply contracts and difficult-to-evaluate practical impact from grid connection agreements.
