Consulting services

Seeking assistance in increasing the value of your sustainable energy project? Need an independent consultant to facilitate transactions?

At Etha, we leverage over two decades of experience in wind power to serve customers in all possible areas related to sustainable energy production. 

If the specific solution you seek is not explicitly outlined in the offering below, rest assured, our capabilities likely extend beyond the listed options. Please reach out to us without hesitation to explore how we can elevate your sustainable energy project.

We can take responsibility for whole projects, all the way from the initial idea to the ready-to-build wind or solar power farm. As a project owner, you can trust us to know every detail of project development to ensure that the studies performed are carefully made. As we have developed several projects over the years, we know how important the support of the local community is, as well as how the Finnish permitting process runs as smoothly as possible.

In addition to detailed technical planning and optimization, stakeholder communication is essential in project development. This means collaboration with the project owner, landowners, the municipality, local residents, authorities, and consultants. Each of our projects has to withstand both public review and possible complaints. In this way, the project is advanced from idea to building permit on schedule without unnecessary delays. If needed, we can also manage the investor finding process for you.

Layout optimization

Seeking assistance in increasing the value of your wind or solar farm project? We can nearly always improve the profitability of a planned farm by updating the existing layout, as the layout has a direct impact on the farm’s performance. An optimized layout can bring a substantial amount of added value by minimizing production losses and maximizing the energy yield.

Permitting packages

Noise assessments and flicker studies are a central part of the permitting process for wind farms. By ensuring that flicker levels are limited and noise levels are within regulatory limits, your permitting process will run smoothly. We also offer advanced 3D models, photomontages and Zone of Visual Impact studies to evaluate the visual impact of the farm.

We offer wind resource and energy yield assessments throughout all stages of your project development process. Our evaluations can either be based on collected measurement data or on estimates, if no measurements are available.

At Etha, we take pride in producing stable results according to international best practices. We do not necessarily produce the highest energy yields, but we produce accurate and reliable results. We continuously validate our calculation results and understand the calculation uncertainties in detail.

As our customer, you can receive wind resource and energy yield assessments throughout all stages of your project development process. Our evaluations can either be based on measurement data or modeled data, if no measurements are available. For early phase analysis, we have developed our own method using official production data for Finnish wind farms to make the best possible wind estimates without measurements.

Over the years, we have calculated feasibility for hundreds of wind and solar power projects in Finland, using our own feasibility calculation model. As we believe it is important that you as a customer understand the sensitivities, our reports always contain a separate sensitivity chapter. We do mainly two different kinds of feasibility calculations:

  • LCoE (Levelized Cost of Energy) calculations are a way to compare the feasibility of different project solutions. This method is used when doing procurement and it can also be used for comparing the feasibility of different projects.
  • Valuation calculations can work as a support during transactions as well as when evaluating or placing bids.
