We provide expertise at every stage of the project lifecycle: from feasibility, development, pre-construction, construction, operations to re-powering, and through all elements of due diligence.

Energy Handle is an energy consulting and project management firm that assists government entities, private organizations, projects developers and EPCs with renewable energies and energy efficiency projects design and implementation.

Energy Handle supports its clients through the project design and consenting process by bringing together cutting edge project knowledge and experience with a realistic approach to development and risk mitigation. We are particularly experienced at working with our clients’ engineers in the development of robust, consentable, buildable sites.

Energy Handle can provide in-depth analysis and insight to key renewable energy markets and associated technologies, especially in Morocco and Africa. We identify opportunities, issues affecting these markets and offer support for effective business development and corporate strategy. Our services includes research, market reporting by country, technology and sector along with market and economic appraisals.
We can provide technical due diligence services throughout all stages of the transaction cycle, from initial risk assessment and reporting in early transaction stages through to comprehensive reporting for credit-committee or data room presentation at final bid stage or financial close. Our Due Diligence includes also assessments and reviews when considering the constructability of a renewable energy project. These range from reviewing grid connection offers and agreements to reviewing access and transport studies
Our full technical services applicable in feasibility studies include: → Layout design → Solar resource assessment and mapping → Technology sizing and selection → Energy yield assessment → Estimate of solar electricity generation → Site screening → Environmental constraint mapping → Grid infrastructure feasibility → Construction surveys
Once feasibility of the project is confirmed, we begin to develop the plan to deliver a shovel-ready project. Within the Development Management phase, the following are some of our services which can be customized to specific needs: → Project Team Development: identification and engagement of key project partners such as legal counsel, engineers, and architects → Permitting and Entitlement Energy handle works with community members as well as local government agencies to obtain the required permits for each project to ensure compliance with all regulation and requirements. In some cases, Environmental Impact Reports, Avian Studies and Aviation Administration determinations may be part of the permitting process → Preconstruction: constructability, pricing, scheduling, risk management, and value engineering → Construction Documents: plan review and coordination → Risk Mitigation → Lease negotiations and building disposition strategies
Our engineering services fall into a number of key areas that include; engineering design and advisory services, following are some of our studies offered by our company: → Site planning and infrastructure layout → Traffic impact assessment → Hydro yield studies → Geohazards review → Outline structural design → HV/MV cable selection and layout → Process and biomass studies → Flood risk assessment → CAPEX and whole life costing → Pre-tender design and costings → Grid connection review, and managing the DNO interfaces → Grid operator interface
We Provide project management with three main aims: to construct our clients’ projects on time, on cost and on specification. We do this by providing project management and monitoring throughout the construction phase: → administer contracts → act as the project interface, → supervising construction → Managing specifications.  → Local authorities’ interface We also recognize that community liaison and the establishing of good relationships during the construction phase are vital. We can provide further support by managing events to engage with local businesses, develop and maintain relationships with community councils and local community groups and the negotiation of community benefit agreements (post consent). → Connecting to the Power grid and grid operator interface In order to connect a project to the transmission system, studies are conducted by the local utility to determine if the existing transmission infrastructure can support additional electricity generation. In some cases, equipment upgrades on the system may be required before the project can be constructed. Once the studies and any necessary upgrades are complete, an interconnection agreement with the local utility is put in place to allow the project connect and transmit power to the electricity grid.
