Clean Energy & Renewables

From clean-tech build-outs, solar mega-projects to on and offshore wind farm projects, the global renewables sector is filled with opportunity. For those investing, it’s a space primed for growth, with success depending on the ability to manage rapidly advancing technologies, increasing regulatory demands, feed-in tariffs and offtake risk.

In this market where innovation is key, we support financiers, developers and retailers to get creative. 

With expertise in environmental markets, including renewable energy certificates and carbon credits, we can assist with project development, monitoring, verification and reporting, trading in international and Australian carbon credits and compliance with emerging standards.
