The consultancy SgurrEnergy says it has launched a specialist risk advisory service to help reduce uncertainty in renewable energy projects.

Grouped into four key areas of risk management, this new service will be offered to clients interested in risk identification, risk analysis, risk response planning, and implementation and risk monitoring for projects employing onshore and offshore wind, solar, and marine technologies.

“Effective risk management is critical for any project’s success, which is why we need to ensure that state-of-the-art tools and unique approaches are applied during the project development and execution phases,” says Raya Peterson, principal renewable energy consultant at SgurrEnergy.

“This dedicated risk advisory service will reduce uncertainty, increase transparency and ultimately increase project success rates and drive down costs, providing significant added value to our clients and the industry as a whole.”
