The course is designed to provide clear, independent and business-focused guidance on market opportunity and risk to those deploying investing in or regulating renewable power projects.
It is presented in language suited to non-engineering commercial executives and investors, so no prior knowledge is assumed or required. Presented throughout in an interactive and market-focused way, the course connects the multiple market environment factors that need to align in order that renewable power can scale up and integrate from the business, system and policy environment to the project development processes, finances, risks and returns.
Over 4 days, attendees will be led from the global picture and trends through to the variables impacting the success (or failure) of individual projects and the integration of large amounts of renewable energy into individual power markets. This market analysis approach recognises that the sustainable growth of any renewable power business requires the balancing of interconnected and potentially conflicting requirements, including reliable service, investor returns and public/political acceptance.
Key Learning Objectives:
Gain a comprehensive understanding of the competitive dynamics, market environments, project risk factors and integration challenges associated with the large-scale transition to renewable power
Understand the key market and business environment requirements for the sustained growth of renewable power projects
Review current and emerging solutions to large scale renewable power integration
Develop an integrated approach to combining financial, technological and socioeconomic factors in renewable power market analysis
Converse with project partners, suppliers or investors
Know what to look for when evaluating long term, sustainable renewable power market opportunities
Identify key investment, project development and policy risks
Learn how to identify, analyse and critique competing market solutions
The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples and data are utilised wherever relevant
