Financial & Techno-Economic Modelling

For those wanting to understand the business case for new low-carbon energy technologies and projects, we develop comprehensive models designed to meet the needs of each individual client, whether public or private sector.

Our recent experience includes the development of financial and techno-economic models for scenarios as diverse as:

  • A new energy storage system;
  • Refinancing a large solar PV development; and
  • The use of seaweed in anaerobic digestion.

Our wealth of expertise in Excel-based techno-economic and financial modelling enables us to meet many different requirements. Projects can range from a simple ‘ready reckoner’ tool, to the development of large-scale, highly complex forecast models. We use our models to form the basis for the preparation of options appraisals, marginal abatement cost curves (MACCs), and cost-benefit analyses (CBAs).

Our approach is to build models that can be ‘flexed’ by our clients to test the impacts of key variables and thereby enable our clients to compare different scenarios. The ability to change inputs to our models, such as different debt, tax and subsidy support options, provides further insight that can provide significant value and cost savings to our clients.
