Applying the Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) Tool to the 9.5 GW Offshore Wind Farm, North Sea, The Netherlands

The Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) tool demonstrates why sustainable infrastructure can deliver better value for money for citizens and investors.

Applied to the 9.5 GW offshore wind farm in the North Sea, the SAVi tool compares the financial attractiveness of the wind farm with other energy technologies under four different scenarios. It values externalities and risks such as emissions, income, land use and others and shows how this affects the financial performance of the project. 

When externalities and climate change-related risks are taken into account, the wind farm demonstrates the best financial performance compared to any other energy technology.
