Finance in a World of Reduced government Assistance Webinar 01.17.2012 11:00pm

Federal incentives have played a crucial role in the development of renewable energy projects, particularly those involving emerging technologies. Uncertainty about the future of federal programs for cash grants, tax benefits, and other types of benefits and regulatory preferences have caused reduction of investor confidence, withdrawal of developers from segments of the renewable energy marketplace, and creation of new risks for ongoing projects.

How will financing gaps be filled, worked around, or relieved by legislative or administrative innovation? Our expert panel, drawn from the business and legal fields, will discuss the future of renewable project financing, focusing on how to compensate for the decline in federal assistance, through new access to the public capital markets, development of potential new funding sources, involvement of new governmental players, and the creative use of structured finance. Their insights will be useful to all of us during the coming year.
