Driven by the need to reduce emissions, leading businesses are increasingly pledging ambitious decarbonisation objectives and net zero targets. This concerns not only direct emissions (“Scope 1”) but also emissions from purchased electricity & heat (“Scope 2”) and emissions along the value chain (“Scope 3”).
Business have a range of options to address their own emissions, ranging from direct investments to power purchase agreements or GO strategies. THEMA helps clients to understand the underlying risks and opportunities for different options and strategies, and supports them in finding a renewable strategy that best serves their needs and requirements, taking client specific considerations into account (technology preferences, own load profiles for offtakers, risk appetite etc.).
Based on our highly renowned and impartial market reports, databases and state-of-the-art quantitative models and tools, THEMA offers a wide range of bespoke services to assess market risks of direct investments, PPAs or Guarantees of Origin. We also conduct full market and regulatory due diligence for investments, which includes quantifying the effect of weather risks on technology choices and PPAs. Our services also extend to the decarbonisation of heat and industry processes, based on THEMA’s insights into hydrogen, e-fuels, biogas, biomethane and sector coupling.
THEMA’s clients in this field include a wide range of renewable investors, financial institutions, utilities and stakeholders in the chemical and automotive industries, as well as other large offtakers.
