Conference Coverage

  • The US International Development Finance Corporation is considering deploying equity in Latin America, as it has done previously in other regions such as Southeast Asia.
  • Power purchase contracts with non-utility corporate offtakers are growing in popularity in Latin America but remain an exception to the norm in project finance, said industry insiders at IJLatam 2020, IJGlobal's Latin America energy and infrastructure conference.
  • Power Finance & Risk brought together a panel of experts to talk through the changing dynamics of California’s sun-soaked power market and the impact for project financiers. Leaders from Strata Solar, CleanCapital, Capstone Headwaters and Solar Frontier Americas talked through PG&E’s restructuring, pricing of battery storage debt and much more.
  • Back to back panels early on Day 1 of the REFF Wall Street 2019 conference at the Intercontinental Barclay in New York highlighted that despite the phase downs in federal renewables tax credits, the tax equity majors still the keys in the capital stack.
  • As the first step-down in the investment tax credit for solar looms, developers have begun to sound out banks for loans for panels and inverters that would safe harbor the equipment for the full incentives.
  • Despite rumblings about overbuild in PJM Interconnection, developers are pushing ahead with new build gas-fired projects there, and lenders stand ready to finance them. The only thing missing, it seems, is equity.
  • A panel of project finance professionals set about imagining the post-tax credit future of renewables financing at the S&P Global Platts Global Power Markets conference in Las Vegas this week, conjuring up a landscape of high yield debt and mezzanine capital supported by merchant wind and solar cashflows.
  • Gusts of up to 46 mph in Las Vegas this week did not dampen the spirits of attendees of the S&P Global Platts 34th Annual Global Power Conference, but did put paid to plans for open air cigar parties. PFR editor Richard Metcalf and reporter Taryana Odayar were on hand to chronicle the action, inside and outside the conference hall.
  • As representatives of developers, banks, investment firms and service providers descend on Las Vegas for S&P Global Platts’ 34th Annual Global Power Markets Conference, PFR takes a look at what to expect.
  • In October, PFR teamed up with Fitch Ratings and Orrick to host a candid discussion on the challenges and opportunities for financing America’s nascent offshore wind industry. Experts covered everything from debt pricing to offtake structures and the full report is in this week’s issue.
