Primarily comprised of solar power, wind power, and hydroelectric, the alternative energy industry is a capital-intensive growth industry characterized by constantly evolving government regulations and rapid technological change. Stronger economic activity and a focus on energy independence and reducing greenhouse gas emissions continues to contribute to the growth of this industry; however, without government assistance, this sector is not currently cost competitive with other electricity-generation sources such as oil and natural gas. Other contributors to the alternative energy sector include renewable energy sources such as wood, municipal waste, landfill gas, biomass, and geothermal energy. BVA professionals have a deep understanding of the issues faced by participants in the alternative energy industry, enabling us to provide our clients with insightful and efficient consulting regarding valuation, economic damages, and various corporate finance issues.
