How to Cross the Finish Line: Building A Bankable Finance Package For Renewable Energy Deals
The RELACCx Investor Financing Workshop is the only event where project investors and developers get individualized, hands-on advice from leading renewable energy experts in lending and private equity investing.

The workshop will provide project sponsors with the rare opportunity to have an in-depth discussion with debt and equity financiers on structuring a renewable energy transaction and preparing a project proposal that will be attractive to lenders and equity investors. Attendees will also learn about opportunities to improve project profiles and increase interest from private sector finance through the mitigation of project and political risk.
