Experience

Since 2004 YARD ENERGY has built a track-record in windfarms. We've proven our ability to access development capital, to build strong local partnerships, and to act quickly on opportunities. Together with our development partners, investors, and local residents, we’re helping build the sustainable energy infrastructure in our target markets. We're proud of the wind energy we produce and of our 20+ in-house professionals who help develop it.

Value creation and investments

WINDFARM LIFECYCLE

Our experience spans all the phases of the windfarm lifecycle. We start by teaming up with local developers (in late-stage project development). We structure the financing, raise capital, manage construction and operations. Small to mid-size onshore windfarm development takes about 5 to 10 years in our target markets. We focus our expertise on the last 2 to 4 years and on managing the operational windfarm. Eventually, we sell these assets to self-fund new selected projects.

TRACK RECORD IN

Development

Development

We have a large development portfolio of small to mid-size projects (5 to 50 MW) in our target markets: the Netherlands, Poland, and Finland. And, we have roots in these markets, markets with a long-term and stable energy subsidy regime. We invest only in late-stage developments and rely on our agile committed development and transaction team to make projects operational within 2 to 4 years.

Financing

Financing

With increasing investment volumes and larger financial interests in the wind energy industry, the demand for specialized (financial) expertise is constantly growing. The unique combination of financial and project-based knowledge and access to financial resources makes YARD ENERGY an attractive partner in wind energy projects. In recent years, we have been involved in numerous development initiatives and we have worked on the purchase and sale of various wind energy projects. For an overview of these projects and our role, please see our Portfolio.

Construction

Construction

YARD ENERGY is responsible for turn-key delivery of its wind farms. We have an experienced engineering, procurement and construction team and a tried-and-true network of leading turbine suppliers, large-scale builders, infrastructure experts, and wind energy industry consultants, all at home in our target markets. This helps us construct our windfarms, usually within 1-year, on-time and on-budget, ready for business.

Asset Management

Asset Management

High availability of operational wind turbines is key to windfarm performance. We have a state-of-the-art Asset Management software solution which provides us management information 24/7, right across our portfolio. This is one of the reasons our windfarms achieve availability levels of 97.5++%. For more information on how we use technology to optimize our assets, please see Innovation in Action.
