Our development support consultancy service is the first step that a developer should take in determining the feasibility of a potential project. Before undertaking and submitting a planning application and grid connection application it is essential to understand the constraints, risks and impacts of a project. 

We provide Developers with fully independent feasibility assessments to identify practical technology options, including:

  • Market review: Analysis, high-level business model development, strategy and planning
  • Site selection: Site identification and characterisation of power generation and consumption
  • Site lease and permitting reviews
