Renewable energy

As the world moves swiftly to adopt renewable forms of energy many national governments are providing significant subsidies and financial incentives to support these initiatives. New Zealand companies are investing more capital in renewable energy capacity and technology, however these companies will be competing in global markets for equipment where demand and competition for resources is high.

Renewable energy projects are significant and risky investments for their promoters. This risk is increased as new technologies emerge and regulation, policy and legislation, both in New Zealand and internationally continues to shift. Energy companies now, more than ever before, need to understand, quantify and manage their risks in this challenging and uncertain environment.
