  • Avatar Impressive model

    Thank you for sharing the financial model analysis of finflows, revenue , cost and debt. I would say it is informative and provided basic structure to analyse the financial model of wind power, biogas and solar plants.

  • Avatar Great tool

    Only setback is there is a lot of information and I think a bit of guidance and further explanation on the specific influence of certain line items could help. The notes certainly help but perhaps I’m just not as adept as I need to be. It works well as a plug and play but I had trouble readjusting a massively negative NPV. Worked good in the long run but was somewhat time consuming.
