EPS Energy is experienced in solar and wind farm project delivery from providing individual specialist service lines to a total project delivery service, including strategically identifying and securing sites all the way through to completion of development.
A key challenge in developing new projects is understanding where and how to effectively develop in the current and changing market, understand the relevant processes and procedures, with whom to establish key relationships and when to do all of the things that need to be done.
It is about efficiently moving from the right task to the next right task, keeping to the vision, within budget, communicating, maintaining quality and finishing to deadline.
EPS Energy has broad knowledge, skills and industry/government relationships that are vital to the success of renewable energy projects.
By partnering with or appointing EPS Energy as the one stop development manager, we oversee and champion the project as our number one priority.
EPS Energy is responsible for the identification, development and successful delivery of the project on time and within the agreed budget. EPS Energy is the project representative in dealings with Commonwealth and State Governments, relevant authorities, grid connection network service provider, land owners, consultants and the community. Such an integrated approach gives investors a single point of communication and responsibility and reduces internal resource requirements.
Based on our experience, EPS Energy can establish the project from inception through to commissioning which includes obtaining grid connection, land leases or purchase, site design, planning approval, post approval work, notice to proceed, financial close, EPC management, completion of development, and facilitating the operations and maintenance contracts for the operational phase of the project.
