How confident are you in the numbers?
What are the risks, and are they quantified?
A Validation Report will provide you with an independent, unbiased third party accounting of your proforma. All inputs and outputs will be sourced, cited, and compared to historical ranges of values for similar data. This process will reveal risks and sensitivities that may be hidden to you, and put a dollar value to them. Most importantly, this information is documented and summarized in a way that provides you, your investors, and lenders the confidence they need to support your project. The result: trust and confidence building, risk minimization.
In those instances where a Feasibility Analysis does not match your needs, such as when you are self-funding a concept that is yours or that you are committed to, a Validation Report will provide you with confidence in your proforma and point out the gotcha’s that may have been missed in your assessment, avoiding surprises, risk, and more importantly – unexpected costs.
Bioenergy systems are complex, but they don’t have to be complicated.
The greatest threats to the success of your project are the “unknowns” – real or perceived. The complexity of these systems is nothing to fear, yet it creates fear and doubt in those that you must acquire some level of approval from, such as internal management, lenders, investors, regulators, and even community leaders. Fear and doubt can be, and often are, project killers, and can significantly add to the costs of developing your project.
