Our feasibility reports help our clients to reach effective decisions and ensure that projects are de-risked appropriately and sensibly. Our reports are tailored to the individual requirements of a specific client or site and are designed to ensure that the right information is available to decision makers and that key issues are highlighted with appropriate next steps identified.
Wardell Armstrong has experience within the whole gamut of feasibility reports ranging from single page planning check sheets to assist with site prioritisation through to detailed single site assessments for high energy users that cover everything from planning risk, through to technology selection, energy modelling and financial appraisal.
Wardell Armstrong can model both the existing electricity and heat loads of a business, estate or any other consumer, as well as model predicted electricity and heat loads for proposed developments. The modelling can be based on either annual averages or using half hourly metered or synthesised data depending on the final application and use.
The models, once complete, are then primarily used to identify an energy source, or multiple energy sources that would best fit the load profile. It is also possible to combine these energy models with a financial appraisal so that the generation technologies can be accurately sized for both self-consumption and to maximise return on investment.
Wardell Armstrong has carried out financial appraisals, due diligence exercises and financial feasibility studies for numerous energy projects ranging from large scale wind and ground mounted PV, through to tidal stream devices through to private wire integrated CHP projects that incorporate battery storage and everything in-between.
We ensure that our models accurately reflect our clients business position that any assumptions or predictions are well evidenced and sourced.
Wardell Armstrong has a strong heritage in the use and deployment of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for the energy industry going back to the late 1980s. Since then we have successfully utilised GIS tools to identify and prioritise sites for a wide variety of clients and across a plethora of generating technologies.
We leverage both public and private datasets that cover constraints ranging from aviation and radar through to planning restrictions and grid access. These are then used to filter and score sites based upon criteria agreed with the client. Our work has resulted in a large number of sites being brought forward and eventually being built clearly demonstrating the efficacy of the process.
Wardell Armstrong can provide bespoke resource assessment analysis services for a wide variety of renewable energy projects. Historically, the bulk of our commissions have been either in the wind energy sector or to carry our due diligence and warranty verification for solar PV projects, although the principles are applicable to any technology or project.
Where necessary we work closely with partners so that we can supply a wide of variety of data acquisition and logging equipment. We are then able to safely store the results and analyse them to provide the required outputs. We also have experience checking and reviewing client data and results for due diligence purposes.
