Renewable Energy Hedging for Today’s Markets (On-Demand)

Available On-Demand | With supply chain woes, tariff changes and the anti-dumping investigation, the war in Ukraine, extreme weather, and other unforeseeable events rocking the markets, renewable energy projects need cost and revenue certainty now more than ever. For more and more projects, hedges are the key to successfully create this certainty and secure tax equity and other financings, as hedges become a larger part of development, finance, and risk management. However, hedging involves complex tradeoffs, and it can be difficult to understand the pros and cons of various hedge products. Moreover, risk assessments have changed drastically over the past year as the market is beset with unforeseeable uncertainties.


Tax Equity Structures and Solutions for Today’s Renewable Projects 2022 (On-Demand)

Available On-Demand | The ability to develop and structure projects in order to successfully source tax equity, traditionally fundamental to the financing of renewable energy projects, has become even more critical in today’s booming development market. With a backlog of delayed projects still being worked off from the pandemic year of 2020 and a rising tide of new activity all competing for tax equity investment, only those who are fully informed on the latest changes in tax equity market conditions, tax policies, incentives, stimulus programs, in-service deadlines, Safe Harbor guidance and the best practices for handling Covid-related construction delays and supply-chain disruptions will be able to take full advantage of the remarkable renewable power opportunities today and in 2022.


ESG for Renewable Energy Financing (On-Demand)

Available On-Demand | As capital markets, investors, lenders and corporate off-takers accelerate their engagement with the challenges of global warming and other environmental threats, the development of formalized ESG (environmental, social and governance) principles has created great opportunities for renewable energy developers to increase company and project valuations, be more focused in their own M&A decisions, improve their own business processes and those of their suppliers, and obtain financing more easily and at more favorable rates.

However, the relatively recent development of multiple ESG standards and reporting formats, none of which were specifically developed for renewable energy developers, can make it difficult to know exactly how to align their business processes to maximize ESG performance and how to communicate their success at implementing these principles to critical outside partners and investors.


M&A for Renewable Power Projects (On-Demand)

Available On-Demand | Being able to successfully buy and sell renewable projects is one of the essential competencies of the industry, central to virtually every business model in the space. But until now, a truly deep dive into today’s best practices for renewable project M&A—including project valuation, due diligence, value-creating deal structures, post-closing integration, and more—wasn’t available. Infocast, working with a remarkable faculty of profoundly experienced real-world experts, has created this unique program to offer instruction into this absolutely critical process.


Renewable Energy Project Valuation 2021 (On-Demand)

Available On-Demand | The renewable energy boom shows no signs of abating, and neither do the long-term risks for developers, investors and portfolio owners. The competition to acquire projects and the shortening tenor for utility and corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) is causing the profitability of projects to depend more on non-contracted revenue and the merchant tail. The success of investment decisions and project financings in the current market relies on accurately evaluating market and project risk over a long horizon—an increasingly challenging task that can create tension between sponsors, regulators, and debt and equity investors.

October 13 - 14, 2021 | The Renewable Energy Project Valuation Master Class will conduct a deep dive into valuation approaches in today’s market, and how to use them to meet IRS, investor and regulatory requirements. It will step through the rigorous application of valuation approaches, helping develop a depth of understanding and appreciation of how to incorporate market volatility in valuations that rely on varying forward energy price projections provided by competing market sources and often spotty market transaction data.

Understanding how transmission congestion drives basis risk and the potential steps to mitigate impacts are critical to navigating these risks.
