Mitigating Financial Risk for Renewable Energy Projects

Given the capital-intensive, highly leveraged and complex nature of renewable energy projects, it is no surprise that 77% of developers consider financial risk to be a medium to high risk according to a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (higher than for any other kind of risk e.g. technology, political, weather). Financial innovation has provided a plurality of politically and legally viable project financing options, however, the same cannot be said for the development of risk transferring and mitigating mechanisms.

Robert Fischer of the Global Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Fund explains: “Most of the risks are borne by the investors directly, and are not outsourced, because there is currently no efficient price for these risks on the market”. In this meeting, we learn from experts about micro (hedging products) and macro (intra-industry collaboration) solutions for financial risk management in renewable energy projects.

What risks involved with raising capital are most significant for wind, solar, biomass, hydropower developers?
What sophisticated hedging instruments are currently standardized? What hedging instruments are in the pipeline?
Who are the biggest issuers of financial hedging instruments?
What are the most popular risk transfer mechanisms available for renewable energy project developers?
What areas of financing risk management are underdeveloped? How can we move towards more customized risk management products?
What are some examples of public/private schemes that address mitigation of financial risks?
What are longer term risk management solutions for renewable energy project financing (e.g. partnerships, mindset)
