Course Overview

Power plants generating energy from renewable resources such as wind, bio-mass, hydro- and solar-technologies have found favor with lenders and investors even in recent difficult markets. The renewable sector in Europe has benefited from environmental concern over fossil-fuel fired plants, further encouraged by European-wide and single-nation commitments to achieving electrical output from renewable sources in order to meet Kyoto Treaty objectives. The United States, China, India and many other markets are also developing very quickly due to government support schemes, driven by environmental concerns, industry restructuring considerations, and investor-owned utility commitments to adding renewables to the resource mix.

This 3-day program will discuss approaches to financing wind, biomass, solar and other renewable projects in many parts of the world; focusing on how these transactions differ from more conventional thermal-based deals. Peculiarities of such transactions 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 to illustrate principles. Attention will also be placed on many of the new and emerging financing vehicles and support schemes.
