ERM in the Power Sector

ERM focus is the Power Sector is to mitigate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Liabilities, achieve optimum asset disposal value, help with permit surrender, and ensure the site is returned to a baseline condition with the aim of achieving a positive future site legacy and overall social acceptance.

We have extensive energy sector experience delivering key support on all kinds of power projects including coal at all stages of the project lifecycle including decommissioning. Whether faced with decommissioning a single facility or a portfolio of sites, ERM helps to manage and anticipate the complexities and project risk involved. From initial planning and asset characterization; through scope development, contracting and execution; culminating with potential asset divestiture and redevelopment, there are numerous critical steps that require completion to ensure a decommissioning and redevelopment project provides the highest value to an owner in a sustainable, safe and technically compliant manner.
