Funding Hydro Projects
Get Your Hydropower Project Funded!
What Is Hydropower And How Does It Work?
Hydropower has been used for centuries and today it is used to generate electricity; it generates electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water and is the most widely used form of renewable energy. 

Once a hydroelectric complex is constructed, the project produces no direct waste, and has a considerably lower output level of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) than fossil fuel powered energy plants. In fact, hydropower provides approximately 20% of the world's electricity and accounts for about 88% of electricity from renewable sources. 

OUR PRIDE
OUR EXPERTISE
OUR STRENGTH
OUR CONTACTS™

A great feature in funding hydroenergy projects is the fact that 

1) traditional funding instruments can be used, and
2) no special accommodations or arrangements need to be added on to a funding arrangement involving biomass. 

The best case scenario is if you (as project promoter/owner) have an off-take agreement (agreement in which a third party that has signed a contract guaranteeing that they will be buying the promoter's output for a certain length of time in the future right from the start). 

Why? Because for investors it is a guarantee of return on their investment, not to mention that it is also a steady guaranteed payment on the debt of the equipment due to the fact that the energy produced is sold over the long term (thus, there is a guaranteed income). 

So what are you waiting for? Fill out our contact form and let's see what we can do together!
On the business end, the Promoter/project owner is required to produce essentially the same basic information and documents as he/she would in any other type of project: 

  • Business Plan
  • Feasibility Study (if you have it)

What you will also need is presentation report that details the technology to be used. 

What can often be the (only) tricky part of funding a hydroenergy project is assessing the technology that will be used to produce this energy; but solid, time-tested hydroenergy-producing manufacturers do exist and are often favoured in these types of deals.
