Our expertise

Renewable Energy

Our experience encompasses all major renewable energy production technologies (wind, solar, hydro, biomass, geothermal…) and most of the value chain steps, both in decentralized and centralized renewable projects

This experience has led us to work with a variety of players addressing these markets: renewable projects developers and operators, investment funds, major utilities, equipment producers, EPC contractors, Energy Services Companies, building materials companies, public authorities

The range of strategic topics we have dealt with has changed with time as the market has matured and new issues emerged. We have covered:


CVA’s experience covers the major renewable technologies and the main strategic issues… 


CVA’s experience covers numerous kinds of players along the value chain
