Today’s Best Thinking on Maximizing the Value & Profitability of Energy Storage Projects & Portfolios

A year and a half into the IRA, both project finance and portfolio/platform-level investments for storage are booming. Projections suggest that more than 120 GW of storage in the US alone will need to be developed by 2032, requiring $200-$250 billion in capital. While this represents an enormous growth opportunity for the storage community and its stakeholders, only those who are fully cognizant of the rapidly-developing financing techniques, project structures, contemporary market data, and best practices will be able to bring the maximum quantity of projects to fruition.

Infocast's Energy Storage Finance & Investment — building on the success of last year's event — brings together the entire storage community, including leading developers, tax equity investors, lenders, capital and debt providers, tax advisors, market analysts, offtakers, and more, to provide a deep dive into today’s cutting-edge approaches for finance and investment across the full range of markets and business strategies in this dynamic sector.

If you are looking for the best available information on contract negotiations, revenue streams, costs, augmentation, M&A markets, merchant transactions, extracting value from storage projects and portfolios, new deals structures for utilities and public power entities, techniques for reducing supply chain risk, meeting domestic content requirement, assessing the potential opportunities and pitfalls across the full range of ISO, RTO and bilateral markets, and the rapidly growing tax credit transfer market, this is your must-attend event of 2024.

Don't miss out on this remarkable opportunity to gain critical insights for the year ahead and connect with leading experts, decision makers and stakeholders.
