We support investors and public authorities from the early stages of a solar project through to construction and commercial operation
Global energy demand is expected to grow 55% by 2030, which will add five times the current EU energy consumption to the current demand. This long term projected growth places constraints on the use of fossil fuels and requires decision makers to consider other sources of power. Solar energy will play a significant role in helping to meet energy needs in a manner that is environmentally sustainable.
AFRY is at the forefront of solar development and, over the past 15 years, we have been actively involved in leading solar projects around the world, including landmark projects that achieved world-record LCOE values. Our dedicated team of solar experts have the core application and technology knowledge to serve clients throughout the entire value chain and project lifecycle.
Our experts support leading private and public institutions in the development of market analysis, policies, regulation, tendering, asset-related engineering and environmental studies, as well as operational performance optimisation. We make contributions towards the advancement of both photovoltaic and thermal sources of solar energy. Our solar activities are on a global scale and capture the insight of all stakeholders needed to advance this renewable form of energy to a higher level.
