Renewable energy is growing at a tremendous pace in India.
While some sectors are growing faster than others – solar and wind power are especially growing super fast – one can expect significant growth to happen in other sectors such as biomass energy, small hydro, and waste to energy sectors as well.
Not surprisingly, such a strong growth is also witnessing significant amounts of M&A activities.
In some cases, M&A is happening as attractive targets emerge; in some other cases, acquisitions of small or weak companies are happening because they are available at a low acquisition price.
In all these M&A activities, or in related equity investment activities, a critical component is the due diligence of the target company. Due diligence is important for the following reasons:
1. The renewable energy sector is new and hence carries with it a significant number of uncertainties, some owing to technology changes, others owing to policy and regulatory changes/volatility.
2. Due diligence is also important to be done on the target companies as many of these companies are small, with nascent technologies, with some of them also operating on new business models.
As a result of the above, EAI has seen a significant increasing in the number of companies seeking our assistance for due diligence of Indian renewable energy companies.
