Meteolien Experts Energies Renouvelables

Assets valuation

Since 2005, Meteolien has been working with wind energy industry professionals on the optimization of wind energy assets valuation during the cession or acquisition of a portfolio of projects or one or more wind farms.

According to the FEE and based on the WindEurope’s annual report (Financing and Investment Trends) “A total of 19 billion euros of new investments in wind farms have been approved in 2019”.

An additional €33 billion was invested in wind farm refinancing, wind farm project acquisitions and other transactions. More than 68% of the new investments were directed towards onshore wind energy.

This economic dynamism involves the creation of new players, regroupings, selling projects, or parts of projects, or entire companies, and the corresponding acquisitions.

Wind farm assets valuation requires combining a classic economic, contractual and financial approach with a scientific, qualitative and quantitative process along with a technical assessment of these assets over their entire life cycle.

These procedures require a high level of confidentiality, responsiveness and a guarantee of impartiality. This implies a personal commitment from each expert as well as from Meteolien as a whole.

In the WACC, the estimation of wind production is essential in determining future turnover, assessing its variability and predictability. It is therefore necessary to have precise measurements and counter-simulations of the production as well as, a new factor, the correspondence of the hourly profiles with the rates of consumption and/or valorization of kWh at the EPEX.

Through its independent expertise and counter-expertise solutions, Meteolien supports both sellers and buyers in future production assessments, both quantitatively and in terms of daily profiles.
