AE will fully develop the project from ‘greenfield’, either as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) or in a potential ownership arrangement with the mine.

“Combining the most effective technical and contractor solutions with the local requirements and target project ROI”

Assessment and Planning

Conduct an initial project viability assessment at our cost, and undertake all the necessary technical and planning work required to fully develop solar projects, including but not limited to;

  • Establishing site suitability including all relevant surveys;
  • Negotiation of land agreements;
  • Drafting Lease Agreements with the landowner, where necessary;
  • Undertaking grid connection studies;
  • Geotechnical analyses;
  • Environmental Impact Assessments; and
  • Energy yield studies.

Project Management

Co-ordinate and project manage the regulatory and planning framework, including:

  • The grid connection;
  • EPC contracts; and
  • Associated logistics/technical specifications to ensure a successful project.

PPAs

Negotiate and draft Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) which are commercially viable for the project and its financiers, and develop these into bankable PPAs for construction and finance.

Financing

AE always invests its own development capital and will arrange all of the necessary construction capital – equity and debt – to bring projects to successful completion.

Risk Management

AE manages execution risk by selecting opportunities through a carefully worked screening process combining the most effective technical and contractor solution with the local requirements and target project ROI.

Hybrid Power Solutions

Hybrid power plants encompassing Thermal, PV and Storage, are being offered to mining projects either on or off grid, where a solution exists to provide 100% secure power, significant reductions in fuel costs, CO2 emissions and overall costs of electricity.

AE will fully develop the project from ‘greenfield’, either as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) or in a potential ownership arrangement with the mine.

In the development phase, AE will:

  • Undertake an initial project viability assessment at our cost.
  • Undertake all the necessary technical and planning work required to fully develop the projects, including but not limited to; establishing site suitability including all relevant surveys, undertaking grid connection studies, geotechnical analysis, environmental impact assessments and energy yield studies.
  • Co-ordinate and project manage the regulatory and planning framework, including the grid connection, EPC contracts and associated logistics/technical specifications to ensure a successful project.
  • Negotiate and draft bankable PPAs which are commercially viable for the client, the project and its funders.
