The future is green: renewable energy production is growing rapidly

Wind and solar power play a major part in energy production across Europe and in the US, too. Project development is key to our core business. As professional partners, we’re here to support you every step of the way: from choosing where to set up wind, solar and hybrid parks to securing the financing needed to fuel them.

“We identify opportunities. Then we grab them with both hands.”

1. Opportunities

The ability to identify opportunities is essential for generating business.

Opportunities are identified and screened by our offices, our partnerships and joint ventures, and external parties. Our expertise helps us assess these opportunities, and we only move forward with those that offer the most potential.

Once a site and point of interconnection have been identified, we conduct an in-depth resource assessment and analysis, including wind and solar measurements, land lease negotiations, site access with regard to landowners and grid connection and environmental impact assessment.

“We choose the right location. Then we take action.”

2. Development

Once we have decided an area is right for us, we co-operate with national and local authorities where necessary, for instance, to secure the required permits.

We strive for close relationships with landowners and developers, ensuring a clear understanding of the risks involved in developing the projects.

“We prepare the infrastructure. Then we deliver.”

3. Local involvement

Involving local residents and stakeholders in the process is crucial as soon as possible. It is important to understand and address any concerns they may have.

At Eurowind Energy, inclusion matters to us. Landowners, immediate neighbours, residents and public authorities are typically all involved on a local level.

“We build energy projects. Then we create power.”

4. Construction

Before we start building, we make sure we have all the necessary permits, including legal and financial due diligence inspection and evaluation of the project. We have a strong track record of delivering projects on time and on budget, including infrastructure such as cables and roads.

Construction takes place in cooperation and coordination with all project stakeholders. Once the turn-key plant is completed and handed over to the owner, wind turbines or solar energy facilities are prepared for grid connection and commissioning.

“We manage your investment. Then we create growth.”

5. Operation

Our strategy is to stay independent as an energy supplier. As such, we aim to retain ownership of our projects and assets.

Following construction, our Asset Management team takes over management of the parks. Their aim is to optimise the parks from a technical, commercial and financial perspective.

6. Operation - Divestment

We also sell projects in full or in part. The divestments are made to long-term investors.

In connection with divestment, we often enter into long-term asset management contracts to optimize production and return on investment and to minimize operating costs, creating maximum value for investors.
