Feasibility

There is often a solid strategic case for a renewable or cleaner energy project. But on its own this isn’t enough. Companies need a clear, comprehensive plan on how it fits with the wider business and how to deliver their targets. They have to weigh up a complex interplay of renewable and non-renewable investment choices, balance demand and supply and make sure the grid infrastructure is in place to support new generation sources.

Efficore would help you to take informed decisions. We customize the study to meet your specific requirements. Depending upon the objective, the scope of study may include following or more.
