Offtake agreements play a critical role in the financing of renewable energy projects.  As offtake structures evolve, so do considerations for developers, offtakers, financing parties and tax equity investors.  But, at the forefront, remains the importance of balancing developer risk and the project’s ability to be financed with protections for the offtaker’s exposure. This webinar will explore these considerations and discuss other current issues and future trends in renewables offtake arrangements and related project finance matters, focusing primarily on wind and solar projects. Topics included:

  • Recent changes in renewable offtake structures and related shifts in risk allocation
  • Differences in solar and wind offtake arrangements
  • Considerations to address financing and other developer headwinds, including the introduction of green loans
  • Future of solar and wind development in Texas
  • Increase of private equity activity in renewables finance
  • Impact of the phase-out/phase-down of tax credits on renewable finance
