Renewable energy generation sources are often cleaner, less harmful to the planet, reduce various risks and can provide cost reductions or local economic value, but there is not always a clear path for achieving desired results, according to an article on the FacilityCare website.
There are a myriad of decisions to be made with each project, and sometimes unexpected variables can have major impacts. Without good guidance and checkpoints, a well-intentioned project can end up with disappointing results and a loss of momentum, the article said.
There are ways to minimize the risks and maximize the potential for positive results with renewable energy projects.
Don’t draw conclusions about a project’s potential based on “common” knowledge. Two technically identical projects can have vastly different outcomes based on dozens of factors that can change over short distances or short durations of time.
