What We Do

CWP Renewables is a leading renewable energy developer with full project life-cycle expertise. We develop, manage, and own projects with proven success. Using our unique approach to follow each project from inception to full operation, we ensure genuine engagement with all stakeholders at every stage of development.  

 

Our mission is to improve the environment for current and future generations by leading the transition to renewable energy.

Project life-cycle
Image Image
Site Selection
Available Resource

Identifying sites with optimal renewable resource (solar, wind)

Grid

Secured access to scarce grid capacity with a close connection as a priority

Land Ownership

Securing land rights prior to starting the development process

Environmental Impact

Pre-assessment of environmental impacts, pre-feasibility study

Community

Investment in the development of good relations with the local community and gaining the support of authorities

Permits

Pre-assessment of permitting needs

Project Feasibility

Further examination of the viability of renewable energy plant through detailed site specific investigations

Development & Design
Technical Considerations

Investment in equipment, staff and analytical capability to verify renewable resources with a high degree of certainty considering multiple data sources

Plant Layout Design

Layout designed by experienced international specialists maximizing the potential energy output and minimizing energy losses

Interconnection Design and Application

Dedicated CWPR team assesses interconnection availability at target location, develops the necessary applications, securing the interconnection.

Environmental Considerations

All projects place significant emphasis on the assessment of environmental and social impacts, using support from established third-parties and consultants to ensure compliance with all legal and regulatory aspects for obtaining environmental approvals. Due diligence efforts are placed to identify, describe and quantify the impacts. Strategies to mitigate the specific effects are developed.

Infrastructure & Roads

Projects are designed to maximize the use of existing infrastructure. All studies are prepared in cooperation with and approved by the equipment manufacturers.

Planning and Environmental Approvals

Once the detailed assessment has been completed and the design of the plant has been optimised in accordance with the outcomes of the detailed assessments, the planning and environmental approval applications can be sought.

Contracting & Financing
Procurement Strategy

Dedicated CWP procurement team with a major contribution to each development process, strong track record, successful tendering and procuring construction works and equipment supply

Permits and Approvals

High quality legal assistance from leading international law firms are present in every stage of the project giving credibility to the project’s realization.

Long-term Purchasing Power Agreements

Negotiating and structuring successful long-term purchasing power agreements (PPAs) with creditworthy renewable energy off-takers, thus ensuring project bankability.

Construction & Operation
Construction Management

In-house expertise and experience in construction management of large-scale wind farms, including the largest wind farm in Europe

Occupational Health & Safety and Quality Management

Potential safety issues and the means taken to eliminate or mitigate them, as per the hierarchy of controls and a risk analysis based approach, should be integrated. A quality management plan for the construction works should be developed covering all aspects of construction, based on international standards.

Environmental Management

The environmental management plan identifies risks and/or significant environmental aspects, actions to be taken (including mitigation), performance targets (where appropriate) and monitoring processes during construction.

Operation and Maintenance

Capability to negotiate and manage O&M agreements ensuring smooth operation of constructed assets.

Our team holds a wealth of experience in the renewable energy sector, accumulated through the successful delivery of projects in Europe and Australia.

We develop and own utility-scale renewable energy facilities incorporating wind, solar, and storage technologies, oversee project delivery and commissioning, and provide long-term operational asset management services. CWP Renewables differentiates itself from most companies in that it sees projects through from finding the site to operating the wind farm. This ensures genuine and long term engagement with the landowners and the community.

Our unique approach to own and manage each project from inception through to full operation ensures genuine engagement with all stakeholders at every stage of development.

At all stages of development we partner with landowners, technology providers and suppliers to innovate and realise the potential of each project. We believe strong partnerships carry projects further up the value chain. Our commitment to value for all stakeholders is unwavering.

CWPAM’s approach is to be a trusted partner to asset owners. We work in close partnership with our clients and act as an extension of their organisation. We strive continually to maximise revenue and efficiency, to foresee and mitigate risk, and to build enduring relationships with all stakeholders including landowners, community, lenders, government authorities and customers.
