9:00 am

The key component of any power project is the successful negotiation of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Through this important document, terms for potential stakeholders (off-takers, owners and financiers) are negotiated and agreed upon, risks are allocated, and legal, commercial and technical provisions are set out for parties involved.


Key Learning Outcomes:

  • The Workshop shall equip participants with an in-depth understanding of key PPA clauses, concepts, laws and regulations
  • It aims to guide potential stakeholders on how to structure power tariffs, mitigate the risks involved, and weigh the options for effective dispute resolution
  • At the end of the workshop, participants will possess the basic tools and know-how to draft contract terms, provisions and negotiate PPAs successfully

Chairperson’s Summary and End of Conference Day Two

9:00 am

Renewable energy projects are by no means a small investment. Usually requiring large amounts of financing, implementing viable utility scale projects requires project developers to draft robust plans that attract investors, and this can be a hurdle for some. As a result, many renewable energy projects stall during the development phase. Learn how to create successful project proposals with IRENA’s project navigator.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify the most critical factors in developing bankable renewable energy projects
  • Aims to present multiple possible solutions to improving financing conditions for renewable energy projects
  • At the end of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of how to develop, finance and invest in a RE project and will know how to access tools and financing options to develop those projects.
