Project Development

In every market in which we operate, we aim to be the leading local developer. In order to do this, we utilise the most advanced technologies throughout our project development and management processes to ensure the highest energy generation yields and most cost-efficient O&M services.

We use our local knowledge and expertise to select locations for development, negotiate directly with landowners, and identify the most efficient use of land for projects.

Professional relationships with state transmission grid entities and operators provide us with the experience and connections to efficiently manage grid connection.

We produce preliminary designs in-house to reduce development time, allow quick review of different project options, and ensure maximum yield and opportunities for assets.

With our extensive industry knowledge and economies of scale, we have the capacity to optimise procurement and construction costs.

Construction Management

Vena Energy’s construction engineers and professionals provide comprehensive design, procurement and construction services. Combined with our geographical reach and experience, Vena Energy Australia is able to scale quickly to meet a wide range of project challenges.

The team utilise our industry knowledge and economies of scale to optimise procurement and construction costs, some of the key advantages of our Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management (EPCM) services include:

Land Expertise

We employ local land experts to procure and perfect the use of the land for optimal energy yields.

Grid Analysis

Our engineers typically have
experience working with local
power grid operators. This
provides invaluable insight
into the grid capacity and
availability.

System Design

The experts in the team
produce preliminary designs
in-house, reducing development time and ensures
maximum yield via optimum
asset layout.

Equipment Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM)

We utilise out industry knowledge and economies of scale to optimise procurement and construction costs, through our connections, suppliers and contractors based on our GIP network.

Operation & Maintenance

Vena Energy Australia’s Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Services will draw on our sector-specific expertise across the region to maximise operational performance, reduce downtime and mitigate risk.

This service includes industry-standard O&M services, reporting, monitoring, and in-country and cross-regional data analysis.

We track project operations from our on-site and remote monitoring facilities that provide immediate information regarding plant performance.

Our operations team also undertakes data analysis to identify operating efficiencies that can be implemented across the region.

We differentiate ourselves from third party O&M contractors in our responsiveness to issues to avoid loss of revenue and our maintenance of spare parts inventories, which help us to provide reliable and predictable electricity generation for our customers.

Corporate Power Purchase Agreements

Vena Energy develops and operates renewable energy projects for corporations that want predictable energy costs, mitigated risk and economies of scale. Our geographic reach, combined with our experience across all renewable energy platforms, allows us to deliver efficient regional solutions that meet client requirements for direct access, physical and virtual power purchase agreements
(PPAs), as well as green energy certificates. PPAs allow customers an opportunity to take direct control of their energy needs and to manage them in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

BEHIND-THE-METER

Vena Energy Australia can offer long term power purchase arrangements for projects built, owned and operated ‘behind-the-meter’ on customer land, providing valuable savings to on-grid customers through reduced energy and network charges and to off-grid customers through reduced energy supply costs.

VIRTUAL

Vena Energy Australia can offer long term contracts for different ‘virtual PPAs’ for the power generated from one of our projects, which provide a hedge against future electricity price increases and carbon pricing risk.

SLEEVED

Vena Energy Australia can also facilitate long term contract for different ‘sleeved PPAs’ where the power generated from one of our projects is augmented with power supplied from the grid by a registered retailer and supplied under a single power purchase agreement.

Benefits of entering into corporate PPAs with renewable energy generators include:

  • Long-term price certainty that more appropriately reflects wholesale electricity charges.
  • Decreasing (or eliminating) retail charges.
  • Decreasing (or eliminating) environmental charges, including margins charged by retailers for procuring LGCs.
  • In behind-the-meter projects, decreasing (or eliminating) network charges.
  • Hedging future electricity price increases and carbon pricing risk.
  • Access to Large Generation Certificates (LGCs) and other green credits/products.
  • Progress toward sustainability objectives and reduced greenhouse emissions.
