Renewable Energy Hedging for Today's Markets - Presented by Infocast

Grasp What’s New in Renewable Energy Hedge Agreements & Manage Today’s Risks to Get Deals Done

Hedging continues to become a larger and larger part of renewable energy development, finance, and risk management—one that is essential to success in 2022. However, hedging involves complex tradeoffs and it is often difficult to understand all of the pros and cons of various hedge products. Moreover, such knowledge is shooting at a moving target, as hedge risk assessments have changed drastically over the past year due to newly uncovered weather risks (Winter Storm Uri in February 2021.) As hedge provisions change with the markets, parties interested in using hedges need to learn which provisions of existing hedges are still moving forward, and how they impact the risks and rewards of renewable energy projects.

Infocast has built on its strong history of highly-regarded training in the hedging arena to produce a fully-up-to-date Renewable Energy Hedging for Today's Markets Master Class. It is a truly unique opportunity for attendees to get:

  • a comprehensive, working understanding of hedge types and uses
  • a full analysis of what provisions are most important to a deal, what risks each provision mitigate, and at what price
  • training in the best strategies for negotiating hedges, including a thorough background briefing on the current state of the hedging market, how counterparties view risk assessments, and what those counterparties need from a deal

Our instructors are active on a daily basis in utilizing and negotiating hedges for renewable energy projects, and this is your best opportunity to get your toughest questions answered in a live, interactive, face-to-face format. They will provide a deep dive in the strategies available for mitigating basis risk, show you how to review a term sheet and the legal documentation for hedging arrangements, ensure that you have the skills to protect collateral and interparty rights, walk you through the pros and cons of each type of hedge and its direct and indirect relationship with relevant project risks, and give you the opportunity to profit from both the expertise of the faculty and the knowledge of your peers through extensive Q&A sessions and feedback. This is the only course at this level of sophistication and depth with an exclusive focus on renewable energy hedging markets, contracts and structures – don’t miss it.
