Due diligence and commercial advisory
Trusted advice from a dedicated team of experts
SFA (Oxford) identifies investment and commercial opportunities for players across the hydrogen value chain, and where green hydrogen can be best deployed to maximise green hydrogen production and CO2 credentials. Decarbonisation and green hydrogen feasibility has reached a tipping point. Post-pandemic, hydrogen technology implementation has moved to the forefront of infrastructure rejuvenation packages as countries look to a sustainable, low-carbon future. SFA is well informed to make the hydrogen investment case. Technological innovation, legislation and business developments all point to the greater adoption of electrolyser and hydrogen fuel cell technologies to support clean energy initiatives. SFA can provide clients with technical due diligence and financial modelling to help secure future funding from investors and lenders. To enhance our commercial assessments, SFA produces unparalleled analytical insights into these opportunities, and the peer group, technology threats and limitations from battery technologies.
Independent valuations and technical assessments
We are already working with clients in the hydrogen economy: from assessing the role of FCEVs in underground mining, through to understanding the supply and pricing dynamics of platinum, iridium and ruthenium to assess the long-term viability of the hydrogen market, to investors seeking an understanding of the industry and PGMs’ future role, and financial modelling of water electrolysers for green hydrogen production.
Clients’ objectives can be met by discussions with our Hydrogen team. In addition, we can call on the other members of the in-house SFA team and our global network of experienced technical associates for assignments.
