A RINA company, OST is an award winning, independent global engineering consultancy, specialising in investment support and technical advisory services for the renewable energy market and offering a complete package of services to investors, lenders, IPPs and developers.
We are a team of engineers, consultants, designers, planners, and specialists supporting public and private clients throughout the project lifecycle; from concept, feasibility and planning, through due diligence, analysis, and environmental & social services to performance optimisation and energy management, asset management and decommissioning across solar, wind, hydro, bioenergy, renewable heat & energy storage.
OST Energy has undertaken technical advisory work on over 15 GW of solar photovoltaic and CSP projects worldwide.
Our technical advisory services meet client specific requirements from initial feasibility through full technical due diligence to decommissioning; supporting the progression of a project throughout its development, construction and operation.
OST Energy and its advisors have worked on more than 60 GW of onshore and offshore wind power projects and have been involved in over $30 billion of operating plants around the world.
Our team has accumulated extensive experience in technical due diligence and analysis roles, providing engineering input and wind studies.
As ESS solutions enter the commercial mainstream, the key to unlocking investment capital for an individual development is establishing robust service revenue streams across the lifetime of a plant which has the potential to deliver one or more of these cited benefits.
Our expertise covers the complete range of system types and capabilities including:
- Grid balancing and support systems including Virtual Power Plants
- PV and wind generator co-located systems for firming capacity and resolving settlement imbalance
- Continuity of power from renewable generators in weak grid, micro-grid and stand-alone situations
- Stand-alone systems
We provide consulting services to project developers, land owners, businesses and lenders to help identify, manage and mitigate environmental, permitting and social risks associated with renewable energy projects.
Our consultancy services also enable clients to understand and manage their corporate sustainability performance.
