Alternative energy

Including wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, biomass, hydrogen fuel cells, waste coal, and municipal solid waste, these resources can provide clean energy and transportation fuels that emit minimal to zero atmospheric pollutants.

In an environment of escalating oil prices, heightened concern about the security of supply, and the increasingly visible impact of global warming, investment in alternative energy technologies is growing dramatically.

Venture capital funds and energy companies, to technology firms and national governments, are investing billions in the whole spectrum of alternative energy sources. In the face of this activity, incumbent players need to rethink their business portfolios and build a clear view of future developments and returns.

Combining our deep understanding of market developments, regulatory frameworks and the underlying technologies with extensive cross-sector experience, PwC’s strategy consulting team Strategy& is well positioned to deliver essential advantage to organisations in the alternative energy space.
