APV’s consulting and advisory services focus on three interrelated areas: Enabling Environments, Project Advisory & Modelling Tools.

Enabling Environment

APV work with our clients to help them manage and benefit from changes relating to policy, legislation and regulatory instruments.

APV supports long term developmental objectives such as increasing electricity access, ensuring adequate security and quality of supply, promoting investment, driving economic efficiency and ensuring the long-term viability of the electricity sector.

To achieve these objectives investors, developers and consumers rely on attractive investment and conducive operating environments in each country. These enabling environments require coherent and cohesive policy, legislation, regulations, rules and technical standards together with appropriately mandated government agencies and institutions.

APV has spent many years establishing long term relationships with a wide variety of clients and stakeholders across the electricity value chain, including governments, regulators, utilities, IPPs, financiers and end-users to develop and update policy, legislation and regulation.

Transaction & Project Development

We typically focus on supporting project bankability through detailed market modelling and offtake analysis.

In addition to supporting the establishment of enabling environments, APV also works directly with developers, IPPs and off-takers to facilitate the development of new power projects – for both generation and transmission.

All too often we have witnessed significant early-stage project expenditure on detailed technical studies and solutions before adequately addressing basic commercial and regulatory issues regarding the overall viability of the project.

We carry out a range of project development activities to help optimise the deployment of development capital and reduce project risks.

Modelling Tools

Our models combine statistical and financial modelling savvy with real-world power systems experience.

We have developed our Market Intelligence modelling interface to allow customers to access SAPP market data via a user-friendly online tool. However, APV also designs and develops comprehensive modelling solutions for a wide variety of clients. These models may be standardised or customised to suit specific needs.

For those clients who prefer to manage and run the data modelling process for their own on-going needs, APV will provide the initial model, conduct user training and ensure that the client is able to effectively extract the outputs they need to support their business and project development needs.
