Renewable Energy Project Finance & Financial Modelling Live Online Course

LIVE ONLINE COURSE OVER 6 SESSIONS
Commences: 10 – 19 May 2022 (11am – 2pm GMT+0)

https://www.infocusinternational.com/renewable-project-finance

Overview

In the global marketplace of 2020’s both developed and developing economies urgently need to master the key techniques and models for financing the transformation to renewable generation while strengthening the reliability of new energy markets and systems. Today’s renewable energy frameworks and markets feature more innovative incentives to structure and analyze RE financial models to ensure that PF transactions are bankable, and conform to RE generation availability and system reliability requirements.

Today’s wind, solar, hydro, biomass, and geothermal project finance (PF) transactions require a higher level of expertise not only in programming more sophisticated and flexible financial models, but also in incorporating the latest risk mitigation and credit enhancement instruments. This online course covers both the key PF financial modeling requirements and techniques, risk analysis instruments, as well as bankability practices. The objective of this course is to provide participants with an enhanced understanding of the financial modelling and key documentation requirements of all interested parties to today’s RE PF transactions. This programme provides you with proven PF

modelling techniques and transaction management techniques which will enable you to quantitatively assess risks, resolve constraints, and reach project financial closure. The practical models for wind, solar, hydro, biomass, and geothermal PF models will be demonstrated through a series of real case examples of projects and transactions from Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

Mastering Clean Hydrogen Live Online Course

LIVE ONLINE COURSE OVER 5 SESSIONS
Commences: 24 May – 1 June 2022 (12 – 3pm GMT+0)

https://www.infocusinternational.com/hydrogen 

Overview

The ‘hydrogen economy’ was first described 50 years ago, but failed to develop. Now hydrogen is making a comeback, with unprecedented momentum from both policymakers and industry amid a background of energy decarbonisation. Nevertheless, given its failure in the past, current investors and business developers in the sector are strongly advised to ensure they understand the complexities and competitive environments of the hydrogen landscape. This new course combines an excellent overview of the different elements of the clean hydrogen sector with a series of critical thinking and analysis exercises which provide clear guidance on market assessment requirements, including key opportunity and risk influences.

This comprehensive course is designed for those seeking a wide-ranging, hype-free and independent perspective on the markets and supply chain activities which will (and won’t) drive demand for clean hydrogen. You will have a clearly explained, business-focused perspective on the competitive context of hydrogen across its various use cases. You will be able to separate what is actually happening in the market from the headlines and hype, and to identify the drivers and credible near-term opportunities for your business. You will evaluate barriers to hydrogen within certain market segments and its competitive advantages in others, illustrated by examples from a global perspective.

Course Sessions

  1. Hydrogen market segmentation and assessment
  2. Examining key hydrogen applications and markets
  3. Producing hydrogen from renewable power
  4. Storing and moving hydrogen
  5. Developing and growing hydrogen value propositions

Benefits of Attending

  • Gain a clear understanding of hydrogen industry technologies, terminologies & metrics
  • Review the value chain from hydrogen production to end-use market demand
  • Focus on the production of clean hydrogen from renewable power (‘green’ hydrogen)
  • Understand the competitive playing field and the economic variables that will impact it
  • Discuss the key practical delivery challenges facing clean hydrogen projects
  • Learn key lessons from project examples and proposals from around the world

tandemPV Workshop 2022

The workshop will take place as a hybrid event in the brand new soccer stadium of SC Freiburg in close proximity to the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) and only a few tram stops away from the beautiful historic city center of Freiburg. We are sure that this stimulating environment will provide space for a lively personal exchange and inspiring discussions.

Scientific Topics

  • Day 1: Materials Research for Tandem Solar Cells
    The first day will be dedicated to materials research, discussing the challenges in top and bottom cell materials including carrier selective contacts and interconnection layers for tandems.
  • Day 2: Tandem Solar Cell Devices and Modules
    On the second day, we will focus on tandem devices, with a special focus on silicon-based tandem cells such as perovskite-silicon solar cells. We will also look at other technologies like CIGS- or III-V based multijunction cells or pero-pero tandem cells. Since the interconnection and encapsulation of tandem cells raises new challenges, module technology will be another important topic.
  • Day 3: Upscaling – Industrialization – Yield
    The workshop will be rounded off on the third day with an industry day, where topics such as upscaling, industrialization and long-term stability of tandem cells and modules will be covered.

Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements Live Online Course

LIVE ONLINE COURSE OVER 5 SESSIONS
Commences: 7 – 15 June 2022 (12 – 3pm GMT+0)

https://www.infocusinternational.com/pparenewable

Overview

In the global marketplace of 2020s, both developed and developing economies urgently need to master the key techniques and models for transforming to renewable generation while strengthening the reliability of new energy markets and systems. These focus on adapting and negotiating the latest models for Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (RE PPAs) and on rapidly attracting new private investments in renewable energy sources. Unlike past fossil-fuel based Independent Power Project (IPP) models that featured standardized take or- pay contracts – today’s renewable energy markets demand more innovative incentives to attract RE supply, conform to RE generation availability, ensure power system reliability, as well as more attractive and sustainable mixtures of fuel sources. Government power sector strategies are now struggling to choose among different practical incentives for new private investments in the renewable technologies including solar energy, wind power, bio-mass incineration and mini-hydro investments.

This interactive 5-session workshop will provide clear explanations of the new models of Renewable Energy PPA risk allocation, of ensuring project bankability, of allowing RE generators to compete in energy markets and power pools. The practical models for RE investment credit enhancements will be demonstrated through a series of real case examples of RE PPA contracts, renewable project finance transactions, and competitive energy markets. Case Studies will include real examples from Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

Benefits of Attending

  • Best practices from international case studies of successful RE PPAs to avoid common pitfalls
  • Direct the legal design of RE PPAs based on your own company’s risk profile and corporate goals
  • Lead strategies for the design and regulation of new competitive electricity markets to attract renewable private power investments
  • Develop clear incentives for bankable private investments in renewable energy generation
  • Environmental, social & governance (ESG) impact mitigation techniques to ensure sustainability
  • Manage successful renewable power project finance transactions

Testimonials
