M&A Strategy and Due Diligence

CRA provides transaction support across a wide range of energy asset classes including renewables and conventional generation, transmission, and utilities.

The energy transition is leading to unprecedented levels of capital flowing into the sector, resulting in significant competition in asset sales processes. Clients are increasingly seeking support in developing robust perspectives on asset values that consider uncertainty and optionality. We help our clients assess their portfolios and identify potential investment targets or divestment areas, conduct commercial and regulatory diligence of opportunities, and support post-merger transformational activities. We can also support clients with asset and portfolio sales processes.

We have worked with many private and public funds as well as strategics on the buy- and sell-side of transaction advisory across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Our consulting team comprises experts across energy markets globally that have supported hundreds of billions of dollars in transactions over their careers.
