WHY IS ASSEMBLING THE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR THE TEAM IMPORTANT?
Pulling the right people together is essential to getting an energy project going in the right direction. Gathering expertise in economic development, administration, natural resources, finance, accounting and law will form the backbone of any team. Outside expertise may have to compensate for any gaps caused by a lack of capacity. Some communities already have an economic development corporation that would form the nucleus of any energy project team.
WHAT IS AN ENERGY PROJECT TEAM?
An Energy Project Team is a coordinated group of people who are involved in performing shared and individual tasks of the project as well as achieving goals and objectives for the purpose of accomplishing the energy project and producing its results. The team consists of the full-time and part-time human resources chosen to collaboratively work on producing the deliverables and moving the energy project towards successful completion.
