The growing concerns for environmental sustainability and national security together with the surge in demand for alternatives to fossil fuels, have led to increasing demand for specialists in this field. Over the past decade AWR Lloyd has been developing an extensive track record in the renewable energy sector advising on projects relating to wind power, solar energy, bio-mass, fuel cells and green energy storage technologies.
We work with government agencies and end users to develop secure energy solutions which are sustainable as well as technologically and financially sound. We provide advanced alternative energy solutions to help clients respond to the evolving energy environment. As a result, AWR Lloyd is increasingly recognized as a leading advisor to certain industry and geographic niches in the renewable energy sector – for example advising North Asian wind turbine manufacturers entering the North American market.
Our advisory services include market analysis and forecasting, analysis of the current regulatory regime and expected changes, assessment of renewable energy source potential, financial modeling, feasibility study preparation , local partner identification, searching for international equity partners, arranging finance, project management, market entry and exit strategies, competitor analysis, mergers and acquisition support, identification of investment opportunities and investment opportunity assessment.
AWR Lloyd’s renewable energy team has decades of experience in wind, solar and biomass projects. We combine this experience along with our capabilities in gas & power market advisory to provide comprehensive analysis to our clients of the key factors that drive renewable growth: technology, government policy, macro-economic trends, power market dynamics and environmental regulatory policy.
We focus on helping clients: understand technology trends and outlook, competition, regulatory developments, how renewable energy fits within a markets broader power sector, cost effective means of meeting renewable energy goals and in developing market entry strategies. We have worked with project developers, lenders and original equipment manufacturers both on market analysis issues and on successful project implementation. By leveraging our network of key industry participants with our power market services, we are able to provide strong support to our clients in taking their projects from ‘cradle to grave’.
For example, AWR Lloyd was commissioned by a Korean company to undertake an industry study for a potential ‘waste to energy’ greenfield investment in the Southwest of Thailand. The scope of work included providing an overview of the Thailand power market, assessing renewable power project development in Thailand and assessing feedstock availability. Subsequently, upon request by the client, we also conducted a detailed review of feedstock supply, heat value analysis and local governmental regulation. As a result, the client gained an in-depth understanding of the power market and was able to make an informed decision.
AWR Lloyd worked closely with a Southeast Asian research company on the development of its vanadium redox battery and fuel cell technologies for many years helping them develop a global commercialization strategy, a five-year business plan and a Development Phase Probability Based DCF valuation analysis. We also developed the client’s financial strategy for raising grant money from a government and capital from private equity funds.
