"Comprehensive coverage yet simple and informative approach
to describe the new development in renewable energy."

Senior VP, Investment Banking, Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad

Course overview

Power plants generating energy from renewable resources such as wind, solar, bio-mass, geothermal, and hydro technologies have found favour with lenders and investors. Even in difficult markets renewable projects have benefited from pressing needs for electrical production, government support schemes, industry restructuring considerations, as well as utility commitment to adding renewables to the resource mix.

This three-day course examines approaches to financing such projects; focusing on how these transactions differ from more conventional thermal-based deals. Peculiarities like resource intermittency, location constraints, transmission, and interconnection will be described, as well as renewable power purchase agreements, and other project contracts.

Examples of deals that have been structured to take maximum advantage of the growing variety of global incentives and tax-breaks will be used extensively. Attention will also be placed on many of the new and emerging financing vehicles and support schemes.

Participants will learn about:

  • Structuring renewable energy projects: Wind, solar, biomass, landfill gas, geothermal, hydro
  • Risk assessment and allocation
  • Incentives: Feed-in tariffs, renewable portfolio standards, subsidies and grants, tax credits, depreciation schedules, and others
  • Cashflow analysis and structuring alternatives
  • Debt and equity alternatives and incentives
  • Managing risks in emerging markets
  • Case studies on wind, solar, bio-mass and small-scale hydro projects

Who should attend

  • Financiers involved in project finance, investment analysis and syndicated lending
  • Government and parastatal executives involved in sponsoring/assessing project finance deals
  • Bankers (Commercial, Investment, Institutional, Corporate and Development)
  • Project Managers
  • Contractors
  • Investment Analysts
  • Project Sponsors
  • Contractors
  • Accounting and Legal Practices
  • Project Consultancies
