The world is clamoring for alternatives to fossil fuel-based energy which has driven significant growth in recent years. Many large-scale projects are currently underway; wind, solar, tidal and biofuels are all garnering significant attention, research, and investment. Opportunities abound, but in many cases the capital costs remain high, especially with fossil fuels costs depressed, which is why innovation is critical for success.
Alternative and renewable energy providers face many of the same risks as their counterparts within the energy sector. Siting, constructing and managing large-scale alternative energy facilities is complex. Timing and complexity of government authorization process also play a part in many regions in the world. The commodity produced is subject to competition within highly volatile commodity markets, and production quantities cannot be assured as easily as other forms of energy available within the market.
