Power plants under development Expenses related to research activities (project opportunities) are recognised in the statement of profit or loss as they incur. Expenses related to development activities (backlog) are capitalised to the extent that the project qualifies for asset rec- ognition, the Group is technically and commercially viable and has sufficient resources to complete the development work. For Cloudberry asset recognition of project inventory is done when Cloudberry has a contract with a land- owner which gives Cloudberry the exclusive right to continue developing the project and enter a con- cession application process. Before contract signing and asset recognition, the projects is assessed if it meets the major key success prerequisites and it must also meet the criteria for expected future economic benefits, either from a project sale or from an in-house owned power producing power plant. The development projects are part of the Develop business segment and are mainly held for trading. A project can be reclassified to held for own use if it is selected to keep as long term producing asset. When a project is ready to build, and Cloudberry makes the final investment decision (FID), the projects will be reclassified to Property, plant and equipment and transferred to Cloudberry Production and owned/managed in this business area. The Production business owns producing assets, these assets are long term assets which are held for power production. These assets are accounted according to IAS 16 Property plant and equipment.
