Power Project Finance

16 – 20 September 2019, Johannesburg

Project finance is widely used for large infrastructure projects including thermal and renewable power projects. The technique enables project risks to be allocated to the parties best able to manage them and facilitates the raising of long-term debt without recourse to the project developer. The correct allocation of risk through an appropriate commercial structure is the foundation of a sound financing plan and this course will develop these themes by walking through the commercial contracts and finance documentation and provide an understanding of how to determine the optimal amount of debt using cash flow and ratio analysis. Current circumstances in the African power project sector will be discussed.

“Take a structured and systematic approach to your business and investment planning, by examining both current market conditions and the questions of resilience and risk in the face of future change”.

This course will help you to think more comprehensively about market and risk analysis, by encouraging you to do so in a structured way and with example tools that you can take away and immediately tailor to the specifics of your own business.

In particular, this course will present and illustrate a systematic approach which considers not just current market conditions and project deliverability, but also business sustainability (adaptability) in the face of future market change. We call this approach “CODA” analysis, since it combines current market conditions with the outlook for market change, helping guide you towards a project which is both deliverable and adaptable.
