Working hard to optimise your revenue
Recent times have been extremely testing for renewable generators. Lower commodity prices, the removal of subsidies and the threat of further reductions through embedded benefits is causing significant uncertainty for generators, particularly small-scale projects who are witnessing a shift in support towards large-scale installations that are deemed to be better value for money by HM Treasury.
Investors remain interested in the renewables sector, with low interest rates making projects more attractive to explore. A trend of developers selling off projects within short time scales is fuelling this. The imminent ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement and existing climate targets means that despite a short term political climate, there is more long term clarity over the role of renewables in the UK energy mix, albeit more for large scale projects. In the interim, certainty over future revenues are essential for developers, owners and fund managers alike.
