Repowering Wind Projects The Advanced Repowering Master Class

Overview


The repowering market segment is continuing to grow and will achieve 1–3 gigawatts per year, with an estimated value of $25 billion through 2030. This presents a great opportunity for wind farm owners, operators, and developers. Repowering offers much more power output and profits from turbines at a lower cost over the extended project life, thus greatly increasing the asset value.

However, repowering can be expensive, overwhelming and complex. Detailed agreements, legal, tax, regulatory and environmental hurdles, if not properly understood can lead to losses in revenues and assets. Navigating PPAs and other revenue agreements, interconnection, O&M, and ancillary agreements, as well as optimizing tax benefits from PTC/ITC extensions and dealing all the issues necessitates an advanced and detailed understanding of the factors that can impact a repowering.

This advanced Repowering Master Class, the most in-depth course on Repowering you can find, will provide a comprehensive guide for quickly gaining the best technical knowledge of the latest business-case analysis and the leading strategies for negotiating and documenting contracts, managing equipment issues, financing, tax incentives, considerations for M&A, policy outlook & more. From beginning to end the class will examine repowering from every angle enabling you to make fully-informed decisions, help you leverage the economic and financial benefits and guarantee viable and bankable repowered projects.

The curriculum has been designed to allow professionals to fully grasp today’s most important topics, including:

  • Complete analysis of the economic and financial benefits and risks of repowering
  • Detailed assessment of the Impacts of Repowering in a competitive M&A environment
  • Meticulous review of the elements of contract terms, structures and agreements to maximize financeability and profitability
  • Examination of the legal, regulatory and environmental considerations to ensure successful repowerings
