Accelerate your technology towards Bankability and Commercialisation.
Are you ready to commercialise your technology?
One of the most significant problems holding back investment into projects that seek to incorporate innovative technology is access to project capital where the chosen technology has an insufficient track record and cannot provide evidence that the plant performance will support the project's cash flow and thereby maintain the project's required debt service.
The European Investment Bank refers to this stage as the "Valley of Death" after the technology developer has invested considerable money and time in bringing the technology to the market and then needs to raise more capital.
This often results in a delay in becoming commercially attractive to project developers at the time that they apply for finance, where investors would normally seek between 12 to 24 months to satisfy their technology risk criteria.
Our Technology Accelerator Service, supported by our Clean Energy Risk Platform, focuses on these specific needs and the challenges required for the commercialisation of the technology from the moment the technology is at a pre-commercialisation stage. We understand the requirements of investors and the technology risk associated with a project developer seeking to finance their project and provide this know-how and work with the technology developer to monitor the data obtained from the demonstration plant.
The Clean Energy Risk Platform is designed to support the debt service should the technology track record be insufficient for investors to identify their debt risk.
