Clean energy development projects are complex, take considerable time to bring on line, and require experienced management. Technical issues span the range of environmental, archeological, electrical, geotechnical and civil engineering. Management also needs to deal with the energy market, regulators, equipment and services, and finance. Project development typically takes five years or longer to get to the stage where construction can begin. Community developers rely on Barkley Project Group to provide the sustained, professional capacity needed to take their projects from concept to operation.
Many First Nations communities work with the support of Federal and Provincial programs toward mutual goals of clean energy, economic development and sustainable communities. Barkley Project Group has helped several communities achieve funding to support the relatively high risk exploratory stages of clean energy resource inventory, feasibility assessment and regulatory permitting. Our team assists with business planning, funding applications, project coordination, budget administration and deliverables.
