AWEA Wind Power Finance & Investment Workshop

AWEA Wind Power Finance & Investment Workshop
October 4 - 5, 2006
New York, New York

The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is pleased to announce additional details for the AWEA Wind Power Finance & Investment Workshop taking place October 4 - 5, 2006 in New York, NY. This two-day workshop is the premier financing workshop in the industry, designed to delineate the state-of-the-art financial structures available in the market today, and to demonstrate the issues project developers and financiers are able to solve through thoughtful presentations and amicable negotiations. The workshop will survey the advantages associated with tax credit monetization transactions and explore the ins-and-outs of partnership flip structures. This is AWEA's third event in New York City, and promises to bring a detailed look at wind project financing and investment while remaining interesting, thought-provoking, and controversial.

Why Attend?

Has the time arrived for merchant wind? Is a merchant wind deal financiable? What about a power purchase agreement - do you still need one? These and many more questions will be examined and answered by a panel of experts, populated by long-term practitioners in renewable energy finance in general and wind power finance in particular.

Have you ever wished you could watch a financing negotiation unfold - without the responsibility for the outcome? Well, we are staging just such an event as part of our two-day workshop. Consider a Greenfield wind power generation project that is ready for construction / long-term financing. A panel of developers will present their case to a panel of lenders and the negotiations will begin! Watch as the key points reveal themselves and both sides work to close the deal while keeping the parameters "market." Will it close?
