Augusta has been exclusively mandated on 22 offshore wind transactions in Europe, amounting to 8,865 GW (as at end 2016) and worked in all the major offshore wind jurisdictions, including the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and France. Most of our transaction experience has been in the two most active markets: the UK and Germany. On both a “per MW” and a “number of projects” basis we have successfully transacted on more development stage offshore wind than any other adviser.
In less than 10 years, the offshore wind sector has evolved rapidly into a mature and profitable industry, with the scale and reliability to attract large institutional investors. Today offshore wind remains a fast-growing and increasingly global segment of the renewable energy industry, drawing on experience acquired from the North and Baltic Seas.
Augusta has successfully advised its clients on how to fund, finance and maximise the value of offshore wind projects, whether at the development, construction or operating phase. Effective advice in this large-scale but specialised sector entails a detailed understanding of complex interdependent elements: the legal and regulatory framework, technical analyses, supply chain provision, the project finance market and a changing equity investor landscape.
