Epuron holds a growing portfolio of smaller renewable energy projects (up to around 30 Megawatts) at various stages of development.
With smaller projects, the portfolio approach complements the larger-scale projects being developed by Epuron, and allows Epuron to directly invest in operational projects:
- Smaller sites can be commercially attractive, have strong economics and shorter development lead times
- A portfolio of small site diversifies the variability of wind energy on any given day, improving performance
- Smaller sites have a significantly larger number of potential customers for the power generated, including direct sales to large customers and to all electricity retailers
- A portfolio of smaller sites can be developed with smaller regular ongoing investments and significant diversification, providing safe and reliable returns
- Smaller-scale projects can connect to lower voltage transmission and distribution networks than larger-scale projects, creating the scope to explore for wind resources across larger areas of Australia.
Epuron Projects is a green field project developer, and aims to increase its ownership stake in operating wind farms and solar energy projects as they are developed and built.
