Mainstream’s business model involves the early identification of greenfield sites in high growth markets which are then developed, built and operated.
Our Global Development Standard
The Global Development Standard is our in-house Project Development System. It draws on years of experience in developing wind and solar projects across the globe. It encapsulates our uniqueness as a global developer. It means we develop all our projects to international best standards even when not required to by the authorities in a country. So financiers and investors know when they see a Mainstream project, it has been developed meticulously to the highest global standards.
