Project Development & Finance

A Holistic Approach To A Complex System

Development isn’t linear or predictable. What differentiates a financeable project? Ensuring that the tools and teams are in place — and have the capacity to handle the details and detours — while managing from the big picture down to the smallest detail. We take a pragmatic, disciplined approach. Our Project Development & Finance Practice has decades of experience navigating the complexities of energy projects. We help clients accelerate the development of new energy infrastructure and emerging business models.

Our Approach

We invest in understanding your company. We go deep into the product, the markets, the technology, the economics, the risks, and the stakeholders to help us position you to achieve your goals. We will also help you organize, manage, and drive the process to stay on schedule and within budget. Throughout, we prioritize and monitor each step — to maximize our team’s efficiency, to provide value, and to focus on the issues that matter. Our advantage is bringing experience in both project development and emerging energy technologies. We are uniquely positioned to bring pioneering projects to market. 

Leveraging our experience, we work with our clients from development through financing to:

  • Accurately evaluate the quality and efficacy of projects
  • Appropriately identify, quantify, and allocate risks among stakeholders, ensuring all partners have reasonable expectations
  • Weave together the technical, legal, regulatory, policy, tax, permitting, and other essential elements for project success
  • Ensure consistent and constructive stakeholder engagement
