Financing Opportunities for Large-Scale Solar Projects

Thursday, April 12, 2012, 4:00pm-7:00pm PDT/ Streamed Panel Discussion: 4:30pm - 6:00pm PDT / 7:30pm - 9:00pm EDT / 00:30 - 2:00 (Paris-Frankfurt)

Meeting in San Francisco

“Bringing solar to parity,” is an oft used expression of those working in the solar energy industry.  While efficiencies of panels are rising and production costs are falling, companies are working to offer kw/hrs. of solar energy at rates similar to those from energy generated by other means, but regardless of how much prices come down opponents of solar will challenge that subsidies are keeping the industry afloat.  Now, with U.S. project developers no-longer having the security of the Treasury’s cash grant program, they must create new partnerships to ensure that the pipeline of projects continues to flow.  

 

With uncertainty surrounding the solar industry, the financing of solar projects, large and small, has led to new partnerships.  Come hear about what investors and project developers are doing to keep installations moving forward.

 

Topics of discussion will include:

·         Connecting project developers and financial institutions to explore how to structure financing of large scale solar projects without the current dependence on government funding.

·         What regulatory framework will there be around technology specific policies to further project development? 

·         Best practices for project valuation.
