Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the US renewable energy market remains strong. However, project risks have risen during the current economic uncertainties and, coupled with expected rises in costs due to weather-related events (seen in Texas), tariff uncertainties, and regulatory changes, many in the industry are struggling to manage and mitigate them.
To address these challenges, this two-day Master Class provides a deep dive into the most recent innovations in assessing, managing and allocating risks in developing, selling, acquiring or financing for renewable projects. Taught by active practitioners, this unique class examines all the newest techniques on how to proactively reduce the risks that can negatively affect the pricing, sizing and availability of tax equity investment and project debt.
Hear real-world examples from today’s market on how sophisticated parties effectively identify, classify, mitigate and allocate in an environment that demands increasing transactional efficiency. Discuss the evolving use (and limitations) of various insurance products, including production, ITC, offtake party credit, and “Reps & Warranty”.
This intensive course is your opportunity to update your knowledge of how lenders and investors view various finance risks and the extent to which they must be addressed, helping sponsors, investors and lenders to work together more efficiently to successfully get projects over the finish line.
