PFR will consider M&A and project finance deals relating to both single assets and portfolios of eligible assets.

Our awards cover conventional and renewable power generation, electric transmission and mid-stream gas assets.

The project finance category includes commercial bank loans, private placements, local and international project bonds and renewable energy tax equity transactions. Primary financings, acquisition financings and refinancings are all eligible for awards.

The assets must be located in North or South America, and transactions must close on or before Dec. 31, 2018, to qualify.


Submissions must be sent to PFR by midnight Eastern Time on Jan. 13, 2019.

The PFR editorial team will then compile a shortlist that will be put to voters in our annual poll.

We will consider criteria such as deal size, complexity, innovation and market challenges that have been overcome when compiling the shortlist.

The poll will also be an opportunity for industry participants to vote for the best lead arrangers, investment banks, law firms, institutional investors and sponsors in the power sector in the Americas.
