WE ARE UNIQUE IN OUR ABILITY TO MANAGE RISK ACROSS DIVERSE MARKETS GLOBALLY

Mainstream’s business model involves the early identification of greenfield sites in high growth markets which are then developed, built and operated.

We have deep in-house expertise across the project development process

As a pure-play developer of wind and solar plants, we have decades of expertise in-house. This means that all the lessons we have learned are used to continually and systematically improve our in-house development processes. It's this constantly evolving system of continual improvement that makes us the best.

Our Global Development Standard ENCAPSULATES OUR UNIQUENESS AS A GLOBAL DEVELOPER

Capitalising on significant in-house experience, Mainstream implements the Global Development Standard (GDS) which is a comprehensive renewable project execution process used by all Mainstream employees. The GDS standardises all renewable project execution procedures to ensure consistency across markets, regardless of the local requirements.

ongoing community engagement

The GDS ensures attention to detail around the design of the projects and meaningful engagement with local communities.

The GDS, means Mainstream can take a greenfield or partially developed project and optimise its design, deliverability, efficiency and ultimately expedite its delivery.

international standards

Our Standard is benchmarked against the IFC Environmental and Social Standards and the Equator Principles. It is in line with the UN Guiding Principles and Human Rights and the World Bank Group Environmental, Health and Safety Guidelines.

The rigorousness of Mainstream’s GDS process means the early due diligence stage filters out an unfeasible projects early on to avoid resources being used unnecessarily.
