Feasibility Studies

Feasibility Studies are studies and reported outcomes pertaining to the feasibility of a project, often commissioned to obtain technical advice or insights as part of the early stages of a projects timeline. A feasibility study could alter a projects design, or even earmark a project as non-viable. Usually however, it highlights relevant technical and commercial aspects that guide design, planning and commissioning.

Study may include:

  • Finance options/viability including PPA and energy market analysis
  • Cost estimates and financial modelling
  • Technology recommendations
  • Location and civil works analysis
  • Technical feasibility, array size analysis and grid/load connection
  • Battery size and options
  • Compliance requirements including DA
  • Environmental impacts
  • Social and community license to operate
  • Traditional owner partnership/liaising

At what point would I undertake the study?

A feasibility study aims to insure against the loss of sunken cost, hence any feasibility study needs to be undertaken at the earliest stage possible. Such studies should help identify the best way forward and include technical, social and financial considerations and pitfalls.

What projects generally require a feasibility study?

Any commercial or utility scale solar installation requires significant investment. Due diligence dictates all aspects of such an investment are understood and evaluated.
