Renewable Resource Assessment

The pace of renewable generation and fuels development is accelerating, supported by strong regulatory incentives and rapidly advancing technology innovation.  The foundation on which these projects are developed is a careful and comprehensive evaluation of the supporting renewable resource.  Pace Global supports our clients in their development of renewable generation and fuels projects by providing renewable resource assessments for solar, wind, and biomass.

Solar
The United States has seen tremendous growth and environmental benefits from the energy produced from renewable solar-driven systems.  This growth is driven by federal and state incentives, declining equipment prices and growing public acceptance of this clean, distributed technology.Tens of thousands of individuals and businesses now benefit from stable energy prices and the elimination of emissions from fossil energy power plants.

Pace Global is participating in the exciting growth in the renewable energy industry. With an energy management client portfolio of over ten thousand facilities, we are engaged and prepared to develop hundreds of MWs to meet the energy and sustainability objectives of our clients.  To assist in this process, Pace Global has business alliances with leading renewable solar energy development and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies.  Pace Global offers project origination and development, and through our partners, we provide a turnkey solution from concept to commercial operations.

Wind
Wind has become an attractive, renewable energy supply source for end-users, including schools, manufacturing, agriculture and commercial hosts.  Recent expansion of U.S. State Renewable Portfolio Standards, grants and utility net metering, combined with the recent federal extension of the Section 1603 30% cash grant and accelerated depreciation, created a strong economic environment for wind energy solution projects in 2011.  Wind is a clean, low cost and low maintenance energy solution that also makes a strong and visible sustainability statement.

Biomass
Pace Global is actively engaged in the development of renewable biomass-based energy projects, including utility scale and industrial biomass generation, biomass co-firing and biofuels projects.  We represent various biomass generation interests, including the largest single independent biomass project in the U.S.  Pace Global has extensive experience in developing renewable biomass supply plans and bankable structures across both closed and open loop supply structures.  We have successfully captured REC value from unique forms of biomass fuels and understand how to maximize the value of available federal and local incentives.Pace Global’s development experience associated with renewable biomass projects includes:

  • Fuel supply planning and development
  • EPC contract development and negotiations
  • Permitting, including options to mitigate exposure to pending industrial boiler air pollution limits
  • Industrial project structuring to provide fair value to project host
  • Energy and REC sales contracting
  • Financing
