We have helped to mould business models and connect strategic investors
Electricity remains scarce in most parts of the world. The expected global growth in power consumption together with the retirement of aging generation assets requires significant new construction in both OECD and developing economies.
Power generators now face a complex web of issues when undertaking strategic planning:
- evolving environmental regulations;
- the costing of externalities;
- commodity price trends;
- availability and cost effectiveness of new technologies;
- uncertain public policy programs around sources, tariffs and incentives;
- and the slow convergence of traditional and alternative energy supply costs.
Torch is active with clients in the wind, solar, biomass/waste-to-energy, and traditional gas and coal fired power sectors. We have been very active with clients looking at clean coal alternatives as well as those who are solving the challenges of carbon capture and storage chain. We have helped to mould business models and connect strategic investors for this new sub-segment of the power sector.
We have also worked with clients seeking to build natural gas storage and LNG infrastructure. Further, we are active with both the technology and service providers who are driving the energy efficiency potential of the smart-grid. We have an expanding network of investors and industry operators across several markets, who are actively investing in the repositioning of the power generation sector.
