Low Carbon

Group Consolidation, Budgeting and Financing Model

Numeritas deployed a new consolidation tool for Low Carbon which allowed them to forecast multiple Special Purpose Entities across business groups with differing renewable technologies and geographies.

Efficient & Scalable

By structuring calculations and inputs, our tool allowed users to add new Special Purpose Entities to the model and consolidate them into group financials in line with IFRS consolidation principles.

Improved Understanding Of The Business Plan

The fully integrated Numeritas model enabled management to drive their understanding of the business structure, and interrogate key areas of existing business models and their assumptions.

Group Budget & Forecasting

Our approach provided Low Carbon with a more accurate, consolidated view of the group and its individual businesses, which can now be easily monitored in one single place.

Challenge

Low Carbon needed a new consolidation model to meet internal planning and reporting requirements for their expanding business.

Low Carbon therefore needed a fully integrated and easily scalable model that would work in line with its 2030 Vision Plan, which would focus on the use of multiple technologies and geographies across various business groups.

Solution

We worked closely with top management teams to develop a scalable solution that could efficiently manage Special Purpose Entities forecasting across multiple geographies, technologies and ownership structures. This was achieved by using a template that could be copied into the model to facilitate future expansion.

Through effective modelling, the management of pipeline projects was greatly improved, with all departmental inputs integrated into a single place for ease of use as the business moves towards reducing its carbon emissions.

Results

Following several bespoke training sessions, management now have a thorough understanding of the mechanics of the model and can update it on a timely basis. This gives management teams more time to focus on strategic planning and business growth.

Low Carbon adopted this new consolidation model for its stakeholder reporting and continues to rely on the output dashboards for business group presentations.
