Storage is the fastest-growing alternative energy asset class, but the contract structures needed to assure financeability and mitigate project risks are not standardized or well understood. While storage is generally lumped in with solar, wind and other renewable assets, storage projects have many unique features that can create pitfalls for both offtakers and project developers if the most advanced contracting practices are not employed to mitigate risks, maximize revenues, and assure access to capital.
This master class will provide project developers, offtakers and financiers with an understanding of the state of the art in storage contracting, due diligence and what is needed to secure affordable financing for storage projects.
