Get the basic tools for understanding congestion, evaluating basis and curtailment risks, considering mitigation options, and minimizing exposure to future project revenue

Basis and curtailment risk are among the greatest challenges faced by developers of renewable projects today. The impacts of unexpected basis risk (the difference in the energy price between a project location and its contracted point of delivery) and/or unanticipated energy curtailments can upend economics and lead to distressed projects. Understanding how transmission congestion drives basis risk and how to identify potential steps to mitigate impacts is critical to navigating these risks. Developers, investors, lenders and others need the ability to make intentional, informed decisions during project development and investor due diligence that align with their internal tolerance for basis risk.

This course provides the basic tools for understanding congestion, evaluating basis and curtailment risks, considering mitigation options, and minimizing exposure to future project revenue.

Attendees will learn:

  • How Locational Marginal Prices (LMP) are calculated
  • What “Security Constrained Economic Dispatch” means
  • Tools and methods to analyze basis and curtailment risk
  • How to incorporate basis risk into each phase of project development
  • How basis risk may vary across different regions and markets
  • How to understand and utilize congestion studies
  • How to evaluate options available to mitigate basis risk

Course materials are structured to provide deep understanding of the methods, analysis, and due diligence processes currently in place to address basis and curtailment risk. Time is allotted for discussion to understand specific issues and challenges faced by participants, with response from industry leading instructors with deep experience in analyzing transmission congestion impacts. Attendees will leave the course with a foundational understanding of the issues and concrete tools to incorporate into internal due diligence processes
