Mastering Renewable Energy Project Finance 

 

Influenced by demographics, strong support by government bodies and international organizations worldwide and associated with the anxiety over climate change, investors are looking more and more favorably at renewable energy assets. 

Thanks to huge cost reductions over the past two decades, wind and solar power in particular can now compete with conventional fossil means of power generation. With their flexibility and ease of deployment, these technology-based power generating assets provide access to electricity for millions of people around the world who are far from existing grid infrastructure, while challenging the business models of traditional utilities.  

Our 5-day program will fully equip participants with the latest information and techniques on financing and investing strategies in all types of renewable energy projects, enabling them to successfully participate in the international renewable energy industry.  

This training is a strategic framework to understand the business models, financing instruments, and deal structures peculiar to renewable energy projects.
