For local authorities
Local authorities are actively involved in the reaslisation of wind farms on an increasing basis. They were already active in term of the permit and the EIA processes, but these days they also act as project developers or lenders or co-lenders. Pondera actively helps to set up a general business case for the project in question and calculates the consequences of certain choices: how will restricting axle height affect the business case? How will the various forms of public participation affect the business case of the project? How will the standstill provision for bats affect the business case? Pondera is able to answer such specific questions, seperating side issues from main issues.
For project developers
Pondera is able to support project developers with cost specifications. We use the cost model of the developer, or we provide our own model. We provide a quick overview of the consequences of the results of contract negotiations with suppliers and indicate the insecurities and risks in the model. Pondera Consult and the developer work together in order to secure an ideal proposition with the bank, so that borrowed capital is acquired at the most favourable rates possible.
