Energy storage independent engineering

Independent expert evaluation of risk and risk mitigation to improve bankability and stakeholder confidence for energy storage projects

Energy storage is a vital component for a smarter, greener power supply. But before funding any energy storage projects, investors need to be sure that all potential risks and associated mitigation efforts have been identified and understood.

An Independent engineering report from DNV GL enables that understanding. Drawing on years of experience in energy storage, we can evaluate a project and show how technical risks may lead to financial ones. This allows the demonstration of the technical, commercial and environmental feasibility of your project.

As a result potential stakeholders and investors can make investment decisions with confidence.
