Outlook for Tax Equity in 2012

Friday, February 17, 2012:


1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time

For the last three years, the wildly successful cash grant program has masked a fundamental problem for developers of renewable energy assets: There is simply not enough supply of tax equity to meet the current demand.

Now that the cash grant program has expired, the shortage of tax equity threatens to accelerate industry consolidation and determine the next wave of winners and losers in the renewable energy markets.

This webinar features a roundtable discussion amongst industry experts with varying perspectives on this market.

The discussion aims to provide some answers to questions such as:

  • Why is there such a shortage in tax equity providers and what are the factors that might change this dynamic?
  • Who are the active tax equity players out there and what are they looking for?
  • Are there any large players on the sidelines, and what will it take to get them active?
  • What are some tips and strategies for attracting tax equity to your project?
  • What do all these funny sounding terms mean, like DROs, Minimum Gain Chargebacks, Flips, Sale-leasebacks and Inverted Leases?
  • What are the market terms for the tax equity deals now being done in the market?
  • What are the long term fixes being worked on by industry lobbyists? What will the next generation of tax equity investments look like?

Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
