This kind of deal advisory services is a key focus area for us. Empower is a true champion of sustainable investments and we are supporting their journey through ensuring the due diligence of the projects in their portfolio,” said Mari Sofie Furu, Head of Section of Multiconsult’s Renewable Energy Advisory Services.
