Feasibility Assessment and Site selection

The first step in the development of any renewable, or power generation, project is conducting a feasibility assessment to analyze project viability and gain an understanding of development risk. Drawing on our full range of in-house capabilities, GCR produce and deliver comprehensive studies, customized to individual client requirements.  

A feasibility assessment would generally include the following:

  • Initial concept design and technology review, including recommendations on layout, scale and infrastructure design;
  • Consideration and mapping of the key environmental and technical constraints (to ‘flag’ any potential concerns) and making recommendations for further work to manage risk, where necessary;
  • Project constructability review;
  • Interconnection options and grid connection feasibility review;
  • Initial resource and energy yield estimate; and
  • Permitting strategy and advice.

The feasibility assessment  clearly identifies a proposed plan for the development of the project, which allows our clients to make strategic decisions with regards to progressing the project to the next stage.
