When all these described finance tools are in place, project development in new energy facilities will become very attractive. Without these tools project development is very hard: the project developers need to realize any warranty, guarantee and finance by themselves. To illustrate this with an example: do you need to make your own screwdriver and screws or can you just buy them at low prices out of mass production by your local hardware store? Project development still will be an art, but it will change more and more to the art of combining the right project facets, while now also these facets needs to be developed (as they aren't realized yet). Project developers will split in four different focused types of project development related companies: the project designers, the project financiers, the project realizers and the project sellers. The Energy as Project model delivers IT models that facilitates project developers with an extended project template that delivers them both calculation as communication tools. Energy as Project is a concept capable of generating a massive energy transition investment wave.
