Join Foley & Lardner on April 14-15 as we discuss risk mitigation innovations in renewable energy project financing at Infocast's Innovation in Risk Management for Renewable Energy Finance Master Class, in which Foley Partner Darin Lowder will be acting as Lead Instructor. This two-day Master Class will include discussions such as innovations in transaction structure, due diligence, insurance products, merchant risk, debt and investment sizing and looking ahead to risk issues in renewable energy finance in 2021-22.

Along with Darin, speakers include Foley & Lardner LLP attorneys Tom Hoffmann, John Eliason, Jason Barglow, and Annie Tsai, along with renewable energy industry leaders Ben Cooper from KeyBank, Jared Donald from Amp Energy, Richard Matsui of kWh Analytics, Andrew Chen of CIT, Sven Wellock at ING, Adam Altenhofen of Soltage LLC, Eric Heintz of M&T Bank, Frederic Petit of Investec, and Quinn Pasloske from Greenbacker Capital.

Examples of topics covered include the following:

Effective Due Diligence on Large Portfolios as Key Risk Mitigation Strategy | Speakers will address how, as approaches to due diligence efforts evolve from the traditional process, sponsors are using diligence efforts in the acquisition, and lenders and investors are utilizing a variety of approaches to conducting due diligence in managing and mitigating the risk of financing large portfolios of renewable energy projects.

Due Diligence Process

Structuring Transactions with Risk Management as a Strategic Goal | Speakers will focus on how rather than focusing on managing risks for renewable power projects only when the assets are being sold or financed, the process of reducing risk should be incorporated from the ground up. They will discuss how sophisticated sponsors incorporate risk reduction strategies into all phases of project development and operations.

Portfolio Assembly

Addressing Merchant Pricing Risk | In this session, the speakers will address how more sponsors and financing parties are getting comfortable taking on merchant pricing risks to varying degrees. What protections do lenders require, how have financing parties gotten comfortable taking those risks, and what risks are the different categories of parties willing to take? They will answer these questions and more.
