The SQL Server Analysis Services (PowerPivot) instance is not started
Opening an earlier version workbook on the server
Excel Services is running on an application server that has the wrong version of the client libraries
Domain controller is unavailable
Unstable server

Hi,
have you configured trusted file location and trusted connections for Excel services?
How long did the refresh took on the old environment? If it is about 300 seconds, then you might hit the default timeout.
