Agenda

Day 1

THE MARKET CONTEXT FOR RENEWABLE POWER

  • The competitive matrix for electricity generation
  • Truths and myths about renewable power: variability, reliability and more
  • Key metrics and measures, including capacity, energy, capacity factor, capacity margin and more
  • Renewable power as part of the wider electricity mix: integration vs disruption
  • DISCUSSION: Energy mix analysis and planning – what are the key considerations?

UNDERSTANDING THE MARKET VALUE OF ELECTRICITY

  • Essential features of a functioning electricity system.
  • Defining (and critiquing) key cost metrics, including LCOE.
  • The determinants of electricity price and system value, including an illustration of “merit order”.
  • Comparing and contrasting pricing regimes such as FiTs, PPAs and net-metering.
  • Sources of competitive advantage/disadvantage for renewable power.
  • The “baseload power” debate (different viewpoints).
  • Clean power policy drivers and influences.

INTRODUCING THE ECONOMICS OF POWER PROJECTS

  • Essentials of a power project business case.
  • Multiple sources of revenue.
  • Contrasting cost structures between different power project types (and their significance).
  • Identifying key business case and investment risks.
  • Internal vs external risks: a financial analysis checklist

POWER PROJECT CASH-FLOW ANALYSIS

  • Introducing and using a cash-flow model(Excel) to illustrate interactions between the key power project economic variables.
  • Project planning, development and operational variables
  • Project finance vs equity investment variables: the key importance of financing costs
  • Policy & market inputs (and how they impact risks & returns)
  • Base case vs scenario analysis.
  • EXERCISE: Illustrating how different risks and project phase considerations feed into the financial model and lead to price outcomes in competitive auctions.

Day 2

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

  • Defining key phases and project milestones.
  • Contrasting different project types, in terms of issues such as risk evolution and timescales.
  • Examining key contracts: FiT/PPA, EPC,
  • O&M, EIA, Grid Connection and more (including examples).
  • Example project timelines and the main lessons to be drawn from them.
  • Why do projects fail?
  • What makes projects bankable? (Beyond the financial model)
  • DISCUSSION: A project development checklist.

SOLAR (PV) PROJECTS

  • Understanding the solar resource, including energy uncertainty.
  • PV project construction features and requirements.
  • Key technology choice issues and project development options, including module choice, tracking and more.
  • Solar PV project risks.
  • Trends and innovations in solar projects, including bifacial modules, floating solar farms, PV-plus-storage and more.
  • Case study illustration and discussion, including the market positioning and value of solar power.

SOLAR PV ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

  • Cost and energy price trends in solar PV: what has been driving costs down?
  • Example solar PV financial analysis.
  • Sensitivity analysis: feeding project risk considerations (and development options) into the financial model.
  • The future evolution of solar power from an economic perspective.
  • Summary: a PV project development & investment checklist

Day 3

WIND POWER PROJECTS, ON- AND OFFSHORE

  • Understanding the wind resource, including complexity and energy uncertainty (and the importance of P90 vs P50).
  • Producing a bankable wind resource assessment.
  • Wind project construction features and requirements.
  • Key trends in wind turbine technology (and how they impact project performance).
  • The growth of offshore wind, including why it is a very different project, cost structure and risk proposition to onshore wind.
  • Offshore wind construction challenges, including disruptive approaches such as floating turbines.
  • Case study illustrations and discussions, including the market positioning and value of wind power (both on- and off-shore).

WIND POWER ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

  • Cost and energy price trends in wind power.
  • Comparing and contrasting the economics of on- and off-shore wind.
  • Example wind power financial analysis.
