Leaders in technical due diligence for solar and energy storage

VDE Americas provides technical advisory and risk mitigation services to owners, financiers, project developers, operators, equipment providers, and insurance companies working on large solar and battery energy storage system (BESS) transactions. Between 2016 and 2022, VDE America supported funding for over 5 GW of operating solar projects in the U.S.—or about 10% of the utility-scale PV project capacity fielded during that time. We are the world’s leading specialist in hail risk analysis for utility-scale solar projects.

In 2023, we celebrated ten years of solar and energy storage project transaction support in the Americas.

Our primary advisory service offerings include:

  • Independent engineering
