Take an Intensive Dive into How to Extract Value for Renewables from Power Markets

As renewable power purchase agreements become shorter, merchant tails become more important to overall project value. Likewise, corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and hedges tie the fate of renewable projects to conditions in local power markets. This takes place in an environment where power markets are becoming deeper, more sophisticated and more nuanced. Prices are at rock bottom. Market structures are not designed for non-variable cost resources. Understanding power market dynamics and fundamentals, and how they bear on project economics, is becoming essential for executives responsible for renewable origination, finance and investment.

Infocast’s highly touted Renewables: Extracting Value from Power Markets will bring together industry experts and active market players to shed light on this challenging topic. Experience a real deep dive into the substance, workings and intricacies of wholesale power markets as they relate to making informed development, investing, and lending decisions for the market-facing aspects of any renewable project.

Gain insight into questions such as:

  • What are top forecasters’ views on future price and power market fundamentals?
  • What market design changes are on the horizon — and what do they mean for your decision making?
  • How can you better evaluate forward price curves and determine the valuation of renewable projects’ merchant tails?
  • Where are the best opportunities for hedge deals and their risks and challenges?
  • What are the optimal approaches to managing congestion and basis risk exposure?
  • How is each power market impacting renewable energy transaction structures and the quantification and allocation of risks?
