Power Hedges and How They are Being Used in Place of Power Contracts

Power Hedges and How They are Being Used in Place of Power Contracts

To purchase a recording, please call 818-888-4444.

While long-term power purchase agreements are still available in many markets, renewable energy projects are looking increasingly to hedges as a tool for securing revenue from the energy they produce. In certain market, such as the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, hedges are the rule rather than the exception. However, hedges are not the same as power purchase agreements. They present risks to the project owner and lenders that are all but absorbed by the utility offtaker in a PPA. In this webinar, the panel will discuss the differences between PPAs and hedges, the risks held by the project owner in a hedge structure and how these risks are addressed when financing a project.

The panel will address the following topics:

  • What is a hedge?
  • What are the key differences between a hedge and a PPA?
  • How do differences in credit requirements, scheduling, physical delivery, quantity and term affect the project owner?
  • Which contractual instruments are used in a hedge and what are some of the key terms of those instruments?
  • What are the key issues in financing a project with output that is hedged rather than contracted?

Please join us for an enlightening discussion by some of the most distinguished legal and analytical experts in the field.

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00

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 $50 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.
