Realistic and profitable economic model

In calculating the economic feasibility of our pilot project, we have taken into account all crucial factors involved. The economic model shows that it generates an attractive return under current and future market conditions. 

  • Real project IRR (post-tax) at least 12%

On the basis of realistic estimates of electricity prices, CO₂ prices and capital and operating expenses, Circular Energy will generate a real project IRR (post-tax) of at least 12%.

  • Power market: balancing pays off

The business model of Circular Energy is based on the production and sales of electrical power.. Read more ... 

  • Gas to Wire with a positive business case

The development of the gas field does not depend on existing gas infrastructure. Potential fields do not have to be close to a gas pipeline but within reach of the electricity network at sea. . Read more...

  • Reservoir estimates 25 years production

We have conducted an extensive study into the geology and recovery factor of various small fields on the North Sea. The field we selected for our first project, 'Cranberry', achieves a daily production of 800,000 m³ of gas for 25 years. This field can stabilize the power production as long as the lifespan of a wind farm. Read more...

  • CO₂ prices on the rise

The upward trend in CO₂ prices has been clearly visible since early 2018. In mid-May 2018 the prices of CO₂ emissions rose to EUR 15 per tonne. This is favourable for Circular Energy as we don't need to buy emission rights. Read more...

Investment climate to realise clean offshore energy supply

  • Wind farms' need for a super-sized battery for the offshore grid

The target of the Dutch government is to expend the number of offshore wind farms explosively to 4.5 GW in 2023 and 11.5 GW in 2030. This builds trust to invest in this booming market. And especially in solutions to possible instability of the electricity market. Read more...

  • Small fields that are independent of gas transport lines

 In the coming years, natural gas will remain an important source for the Dutch energy supply as the cleanest fossil raw material. Circular Energy wants to extract natural gas from small fields in the North Sea. Investments in offshore installations can count on support from EBN. Read more ...

  • CCS to process waste efficiently

 In order to achieve the climate targets, energy saving and sustainable energy generation are not sufficient at this moment. To  reduce CO₂ emissions, the government supports initiatives to capture and store CO₂. Circular Energy stores the released CO₂ itself. Read more... 

Smart combination of proven technologies

The offshore installation of Circular Energy uses proven technologies. We optimize our integral design and the capacity of all components to the ultimate goal: balancing the offshore grid. Investors can be certain that no risks are taken with the reliability of the offshore installation. Read more...

Experienced team with risk-bearing experts

Circular Energy consists of an enthusiastic team of experts from different disciplines. They combine a university technical or financial/ economic background with years of experience in the oil & gas industry or electricity sector. As co-shareholder, they bear part of the risk. Meet our team

Corporate social responsibility

As an investor you want to comply with the obligations that corporate social responsibility entails. The offshore installation of Circular Energy is both circular and limited in its impact on the environment. We try to use refurbished components as much as possible. Read more... 

Political support

  • Climate law creates long-term perspective

The unique Dutch climate law aims for a CO₂ reduction of 49% in 2030 and 95% in 2050 compared to 1990. That 49% amounts to about 41 megatonnes of CO₂. Such a legal requirement stretches mulitple government terms. This long-term perspective is favourable for Circular Energy and investors who have focused on a sustainable future.

  •  Climate agreement to accelerate sustainable innovations

 In 2030, the Netherlands hase to reduce our CO emissions with 49% compared to 1990. In order to achieve this goal, the Dutch government, the industry and NGO’s have negotiated a climate agreement.



Manageable project

A significant investments is required for the realization of our pilot project. To spread the risk for investors, we have split the project in different phases. In addition, we are looking for different investors to find the ideal combination of financing forms. Read more...

Identified but manageable risks

We have identified a number of risks to the viability of our pilot project  In our economic assessment we include realistic scenario's for all of the following challenges:

  • Public acceptance
  • Investment costs
  • Electricity prices
  • Wind farm realization
  • CO₂ prices
