An Aberdeen-headquartered firm has announced it has formed a new wind analysis team to support both onshore and offshore wind developers.
Xodus Group, who also have offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Orkney, Egypt and Perth, Australia, said it has put together an advisory unit that will offer energy yield analysis services across all stages of wind farm development.
The firm claimed that the new team was a response to an “unprecedented boom” in onshore and offshore wind developments.
Xodus said the new team will “provide the insight that developers need, and banks will demand” as wind farm developers seek to reduce risk and uncertainty around projects.
Peter Tipler, Xodus’ renewables director said: “The renewables industry is enjoying an unprecedented boom, with optimism high and positive policy developments at home and in new markets.
“However, good intentions aren’t investments, and when it comes to investments the things that matter are risk and uncertainty.
“Our new team will ensure that developers and investors have the advice they need to keep sight of the end goal when working on tomorrow’s renewable energy projects.”
The service will be led by Przemek Marek, who recently joined from K2 Management.
Mr Marek is a renewables consultant in the advisory team at Xodus, developing the wind analysis methodology and working on wind resource and energy yield assessments.
He will be supported by Rob Clayton, who joined Xodus last year from Wood.
