“In the face of shrinking margins, product innovation is high on the list of every company in the highly competitive solar materials industry. There are millions to be made, but there are also millions to be lost without thorough evaluation and preparation for new products.”
“There’s a lot at stake when expanding into new geographic markets – it requires a carefully considered approach to ensure growth not just for now but for the future. We take the responsibility seriously, delivering a meticulous and comprehensive internationalization strategy tailored to the client’s needs.”
Governmental advisory services
We help governments to structure their renewable energy procurement programs and maximize local value creation. Developing and implementing an effective long-term renewable energy program is a complex task for governments involving many stakeholders and a myriad of economic and legal considerations. With a successful track record in advising governmental institutions in Europe, the USA and the MENA region, we offer a full range of services including the evaluation and selection of the most suitable support scheme, the structuring of local content regulations, effective grid integration, and the development of optimal procurement, industrialization and cluster strategies. We advise governments on embedding renewable energy into their broader energy strategy, achieving competitive pricing and maximizing local value creation.
