Projects & Money - Presented by Infocast




Join Leading Project Developers and Capital Providers at the Premier Project Finance Event as They Set the Deal-Making Landscape for the Year Ahead!

Projects & Money, the highly anticipated annual conference known as the “one-stop networking hub for project finance professionals,” returns to New Orleans January 24-26, 2023.

Projects & Money is the meeting where the country’s leading project developers and the financial community come to kick off their year. This event provides unmatched opportunities to start your year right by connecting with all the leading project financiers and developers, sharing information about upcoming opportunities, buying and selling projects, assessing the latest market intelligence on the trends in the financing and M&A markets, and learning the latest approaches and strategies that developers and financiers are using to deal with the obstacles facing the industry.

Despite increasing costs, continuing supply chain problems, inflationary pressures, and geopolitical turmoil distressing developer strategies and project financing, momentum continues to build in this critical market. The expansion of federal and state decarbonization policies, including the passage of the historic Inflation Reduction Act and major utility and corporate commitments to reduce carbon emissions are continuing to drive extraordinary demand for additions of renewable energy. How are these head- and tail-winds impacting investors’ plans for renewable energy investment in 2023? How and where do developers expect to increase their development activity in the year ahead? Only those armed with the latest intelligence received directly from the industry’s top movers and shakers will be positioned to maximize their success in the year ahead.

January 2023 is when you really need the high-powered networking that is at the heart of Projects & Money. From beginning to end, there will be constant opportunities to meet key decision-makers from the project and finance communities, get answers to these and more questions, and capitalize on new opportunities that will lead to successful deals. Come, join us in New Orleans at the can’t-miss event to kick-off your 2023 calendar year!
