CCS / Decarbonization Project Development, Finance & Investment - Presented by Infocast

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

The Only Event to Bring Together Investors, Emitters and Developers for a Deep Dive into their Needs and Perspectives on Investing In, Contracting and Financing for CCS and Decarbonization Projects. Come Here to Learn What You’ll Need to Get Actual Projects Built in this Critical Space.


Triggered by a recent expansion of federal 45Q tax credits, market demand, and technological advances, as well as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s (“Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill”) $3.5 billion appropriation for them, CCS and CCUS projects are rapidly heating up as a new vehicle for large tax equity investment, which has in turn triggered project development of both standalone Direct Air Capture (DAC) and retrofits of carbon control technologies to existing power plants and industrial facilities.

However, developing and financing such projects will involve overcoming a whole series of sometimes novel challenges in a field that is still rapidly developing. Understanding federal and state policies and incentives, obtaining permits, making equipment and technical choices, negotiating contract issues between emitters and decarbonization developers, and structuring deals to meet the needs of investors, lenders and tax-equity: these must all be tackled to bring a decarbonization project into reality. Only the best informed will succeed in this highly competitive space.

Infocast’s CCS/Decarbonization Project Development, Finance & Investment Summit will bring together project developers, emitters, providers of tax equity, development capital and cash equity to explain the latest developments, showcase critical market information, provide an “inside view” from the perspectives of all the players in these deals, to let you know how to take maximum advantage of available federal and state programs and incentives and other potential revenue streams and to get what you need to make actual projects in the exciting new CCS/CCUS space actually happen. A unique opportunity to network in order to build up the burgeoning US market and strategize to tackle the challenges that lie ahead for this evolving industry. Review our program outline and reserve your place at this event today.

AND DON’T MISS the Briefing: Application of 45Q to CCS & CCUS Projects for a deep dive walk- through on the provisions and latest expansions of 45Q and IRS-issued guidance, and to identify the potential ownership and project structuring pitfalls in them.
