Our Next Seminar & Teleconference

OVER WHERE?

Wednesday, APRIL 30, 2014

Despite banner years for wind in 2012 and solar in 2013 and important industry finance innovations, the U.S. renewable energy industry faces significant policy uncertainty. Where might U.S. developers, vendors and investors go instead to source new renewable energy opportunities as an important risk mitigation strategy? Perhaps Latin America and the Caribbean?

This would not be the first time U.S. companies look abroad for new energy development opportunities in the power sector--in fact, it is at least the third. Thus, off-shore markets and projects can be compared using selection criteria developed during past cross-border forays, including credit quality, government incentives, tax considerations and political risk.  

Join our panel of seasoned energy professionals for our first cross-border panel of the year, which will focus on nearby markets of Latin America and the Caribbean.  Following an overview of current opportunities and developments in key markets, our panelists will discuss alternative considerations for selecting and advancing successful off-shore project opportunities.
