Government & Public Sector

Energy presents challenges, but opportunities also. A complex balance must be struck among technical, economic and environmental considerations, but the transition away from conventional energy has the potential to open the door to innovation, growth, and new revenues.

Decarbonisation opportunities reside in renewables and smart energy infrastructure, such as battery storage, electric vehicles and a range of emerging flexible energy technologies. And while decarbonisation efforts tend to major on power – heating, cooling and transport cannot be overlooked.

Our team has many years of experience formulating and delivering joined-up energy strategy for government and the public sector.

Investors & Developers

Smart Energy Infrastructure (SEI) is a key new asset class opportunity, and essential for wind and solar at scale. SEI technologies are diverse. They include the renewable, energy storage, grid and electric vehicle interface; as well as CHP, mini-grids, demand aggregation, grid interconnectors, and others still emerging.

A third of UK power is generated locally and is increasingly building-integrated. Investors looking for new revenue can profit from this convergence of property and energy as it becomes mainstream. NRP is a Joint Venture with Regent Capital, which for fifteen years has structured investments in property and energy.

We provide techno-economic due diligence on investment projects, origination, and advice on renewable and smart energy strategy.

Local Energy Users

Local energy is on the rise: comprising just 4% of installed capacity in 2000, local power plants like solar PV and wind farms today make up 20% of all UK power capacity. Energy users are changing too. Once passive buyers of energy, users are increasingly producing cheaper, clean electricity for themselves. Combined with the electrification of transport and heat, greatly increasing electricity demand, the result is a pressing need for new, local marketplaces where energy can be traded to optimise local supply and demand – all within the constraints of the existing grid.

New Resource Partners works with energy utilities, city councils, technology companies, and energy users to drive local energy market innovation to arrive at the best commercial solutions. In this capacity, we are leading the Liverpool Energy Xchange project.
