Utilising renewable energy
How can renewable energy be converted into profit?
The opportunities associated with renewable energy are enormous as are the risks: economically, technologically, and from a regulatory standpoint. PwC helps you invest with a view to getting long-term returns.
The delivery of cleaner and renewable energy entails considerable investment, project and technological challenges. Developments such as the exploration of carbon capture technologies, large scale solar generation, geothermal drilling and offshore wind in deepwater locations carry significant risks and uncertainties. These risks are all the greater given the volatile market for renewables. In addition companies must manage frequent demand-supply imbalances caused by unfavourable weather conditions or other factors. At the same time, they must be familiar with different types of government subsidies.
