Consultancy and project developer under one roof
We are there for you both as a consultancy and project developer. With a business that stands on two pillars, we can assist throughout the entire project development, and our business branches enables us to do it in with two different approaches and adapted to your needs.
The consulting services range from planning to project development and construction of renewable energy plants. To deliver a complete solution, we have a strong network of sub-consultants, experts and partners in solar energy, battery storage, wind power and hydrogen.
Our project development focuses on battery storage and solar energy. We also offer the opportunity to invest in wind power and hydrogen. We target the Swedish market and its good development opportunities but can also offer investments in other fast-growing markets for renewable energy.
We assist you with services that spans from advice in individual cases and expert support in various issues to the preparation and management of permit applications. Our consulting business specialise in project management, environmental law assessments and permit-related issues.
In environmental permitting processes and environmental law, we help you minimise permit risks so that your application has a higher probability of being granted. We solve individual project issues with the goal of generating an environmental permit and a profitable project. We help you with mapping of permit processes, applications, risk assessments, analysis, legal investigations, external monitoring and more. Through sub-consultants, experts, and partners in for example electricity networks, we deliver a whole of consulting services in environmental permitting.
In-house and with the help of external expert consultants, we also offer limited services such as analyses and assessments of conflicting interests, such as defence interests, naval activities, national interests and various natural values.
We develop projects in battery storage, solar energy, wind power and hydrogen until investment decision (RTB-status) for investors, partners, energy utilities, and others. The foundation for our renewable energy projects is a great understanding of the energy market and the environmental permitting process, based on our experiences from developing solar, battery and wind projects in Sweden. Our project organisation benefits from the consultancy network of experts, partners and sub-consultants and is permeated by industrial know-how that provides solutions for fast-paced projects. If you are interested in us as a project developer, we have good access to large and small potential project sites for a mixed portfolio.
In addition to the services that JDA Renewables offers in Sweden, we can through a partly owned Thai company, PDT Renewable Energy, also offer business and project development in Thailand to investors, partners, and others.

What are the benefits of renewable energy?
Renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power, emit no greenhouse gas emissions or other pollutants. With renewable energy, we can reduce the use of fossil fuels and transform society to reduce climate change. By switching to renewable energy sources, air pollution can be reduced, public health improved, natural resources preserved, and the environment protected. Renewable energy has had a rapid technological development with significant cost reductions in recent years and it is now a competitive type of energy source from a cost perspective.
How does solar energy work?
Solar energy is produced by photovoltaic panels (PV) converting sunlight into electricity using a semiconductor material. A solar panel consists of several interconnected solar cells, which are interconnected in a circuit and with two layers an electric field is created between when the sun shines on them and electricity is formed. In order to use the electricity from the solar panels or bring it into the grid, it is converted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) using an inverter.
How does wind power work?
Wind power converts the kinetic energy of the wind into electricity using wind turbines. Through the rotor blades and generator, the energy of the wind is captured, and the mechanical movement is converted into electricity. Wind turbines are usually gathered in a wind farm with an internal electricity grid that connects them to substations. The generated electricity from the wind farm is fed into the local grid or transmission grid depending on the size and location of the facility.
How does land negotiation work in renewable energy?
Land negotiation for renewable energy is the process in which project developers negotiate with landowners or land users. This is to secure the land needed to build and operate facilities such as wind farms, solar power plants and hydropower plants. This process is an important part of initiating and implementing renewable energy projects.
The process starts with identifying suitable locations for renewable energy projects, such as windy areas or areas with plenty of sunshine. Factors such as ground topography, proximity to the power grid and permit requirements can also affect the choice of location. Once a suitable site has been found, the developer contacts landowners or land users who own or control the land. It can be private individuals, companies, farmers, or even authorities depending on the area. This is followed by negotiations involving discussions on various aspects of the project such as lease agreements, land purchases, distribution of revenue, project timeframes and possible compensation for any impact on land use or the environment. Based on the discussions, the project developer and the landowner can create a formal agreement that clearly describes the terms of the land use. Once the land negotiations are completed and all agreements are signed, the project developer can proceed with the planning, construction, and operation of that project on the land.
What are agrivoltaics?
Agrivoltaics (agrophotovoltaics) is a way of combining agriculture with the product of solar energy. Through agrivoltaics, farmers can use their land for both crop or animal husbandry and energy production at the same time. By providing shade, agrivoltaics can reduce crop water evaporation, heat impact and sun exposure, leading to increased yields and better quality products. Agrivoltaics can also enable available land areas to be used more efficiently as the land can be used for both agriculture and energy production. In addition it reduces land competition in cases where available land is needed for both agriculture and energy production.Agrivoltacis is still a relatively new technology, but research studies have shown that done correctly, it is possible to produce energy profitably while it is possible to farm.
What is battery storage?
Through battery storage, electrical energy is stored from usually solar energy or wind power. When more solar or wind power is produced than needed, the batteries are charged. When there is increased demand for electricity increases or when there is no sunlight or wind, the stored energy can be used to meet the demand. Battery storage systems can be used in residential buildings to commercial properties and large-scale power grids. They can provide backup power during power outages or periods of high demand for electricity, help stabilize the grid and strengthen grid infrastructure.
What is BESS?
BESS is an abbreviation of Battery Energy Storage System. A BESS consists of one or more battery banks, which in turn are made up of individual battery cells. BESS technology is becoming more common in everything from residential and commercial buildings to large-scale power grids. Renewable energy variability increases the need to be able to store, control and stabilize energy production, which can be done through the use of BESS technology. The capacity of a BESS is measured in terms of its energy storage capacity, which is usually measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). The power of a BESS, which is the speed at which it can deliver electrical energy, is usually measured in kilowatts (kW) or megawatts (MW).
What is PPA?
PPA is an abbreviation of Power Purchase Agreement. Through a PPA, a buyer can agree to purchase the electricity generated over a certain period of time at a predetermined price. PPAs are common in renewable energy and are important for financing and developing projects by generating long-term revenue and a stable price.
