Masterclass energy finance

Masterclass energy finance

From financing the exploration and exploitation of offshore oil fields to financing large solar farms; project finance is a driving factor in the development of the energy industry. Gaining an understanding of the key principles behind project finance can mean the difference between success and failure in project development.

To help you understand these principles, Yes-DC has invited ABN Amro and Royal HaskoningDHV to give a masterclass on financing renewable energy projects. This event will be free of charge, and will teach you about the important factors in project finance, such as investment risks and the characteristics of bank capital and equity. The event will consist of lectures and assignments.
