Course Description

The course describes the disruptive impact of renewable energy on the current electricity market, and explains how financing solutions which were designed for more mature technologies can be used to finance renewable energy projects. It first discusses the workings of today's electricity market, with its ongoing deregulation, then explains how electricity market prices are set and how renewable energy makes it necessary to switch paradigm. It then explores the origins of project finance and its applicability to renewable energy, including an explanation of bankability requirements for such projects. Finally, through a case study, the course will look at how offshore wind projects are financed, and current market conditions and typical financing challenges for such projects.
