This two-day comprehensive Master Class will provide attendees an immersion into non-standard hedge agreements, and the provisions and conceptualization vital to their use with battery storage, proxy generation, and affiliate swaps. Attendees will also hear all of the most recent developments in the ERCOT market regarding hedge negotiations, pricing and payments, and counterparty issues.

With the meltdown of the ERCOT power grid, many in the industry are wondering how hedges fared, and what factors led to each outcome. The dramatic implications of contractual defenses in hedge agreements have become vitally important, with increasing scrutiny necessary to ensure that a project is covered.

The Hedging for New Use Cases Master Class is your opportunity to learn the contractual frameworks involved in bespoke hedge agreements as cutting-edge financing for renewable energy projects, and gain a working understanding of how to use these structures and provisions for new use cases and new market conditions as they arise.

This prescient event, taught by active practitioners, will examine the complex tax rules for affiliate hedges, the methodology used for trade value in proxy generation instruments, and the utilization of hedges to enable battery storage companies’ access to parts of the market previously unreachable to them. It will delineate the interests, concerns and requirements of all participants in a hedge agreement negotiation and the entire discussion will be underpinned by contemporary real-world case studies to illustrate the details.
