Our Next Seminar & Teleconference

Trends in Clean Energy Finance

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Renewable energy finance is scaling-up and maturing. One change is the introduction of new financial mechanisms that are becoming more common in the clean energy sector, in part, due to the uncertainty over whether federal incentives will continue. This webinar will discuss these evolving and new mechanisms that expand access to capital, including green bonds, private equity investment, yieldcos, securitization, and sovereign wealth funds. What impact have these financial mechanisms had on the market? How will investors and developers react to these financial innovations over the next five years? Join us to gain an in-depth look at the financing tools that investors and developers are focusing on to spur growth throughout the renewable energy industry.
