Renewable Energy Project Development: Contracting for Success

Two Dates and Locations
June 15, 2017 and July 12, 2017
Cleveland, OH and Portland, OR

Renewable Energy Project Development: Contracting for Success

Renewable energy continues to dominate as the leading source for new electric generation being developed. Contracting mis-steps are common to any medium or large infrastructure projects, yet there are some specific to renewable energy projects and related technologies, business models and policies. By identifying these issues early and thinking about how they play out in contract negotiations, stakeholders can tee up a successful project that is transaction cost-efficient while they avoid “tying their shoelaces together.”

This course will examine issues that are relevant to developing and financing a renewable energy project and that ultimately need to be solved via contracting arrangements including:
  • Project Economics
  • Cost / Risk Allocation
  • Parties
  • Land
  • Financing
  • Energy Regulation and Policy Incentives
  • Technology and other Regulatory Issues
For each of these topics, the instructors will frame relevant issues, highlight and examine pitfalls that cause cost overruns and delays or that stop a project in its tracks and then to consider proactive steps to set up a successful project. The course includes conceptual discussions, analysis of contractual arrangements and/or mapping out of deal structures.
