Following the pioneering efforts of companies like Google, Walmart, Ikea, Mars, Microsoft, and Apple, a growing number of corporations are exploring opportunities to buy the output of offsite renewable energy projects, and sometimes even the projects themselves. Corporate end-use customers represent an important and growing market for renewable energy projects, but the opportunity is not free from challenges. Corporate energy buyers have much less energy transaction experience than the utilities that renewable energy developers are used to dealing with, and state and federal energy laws often pose obstacles to structuring a transaction that will enable an end use customer to purchase renewable energy for its own use. Even so, corporate end-users, driven by a desire to reduce carbon footprints or meet clean energy goals, or simply to control energy costs, are working with developers to design new tools that will enable customers to buy the renewable energy that they want from off site projects.

The panel will address the following topics:

  • Synthetic power purchase agreements, contracts for differences and other structures used to purchase offsite renewable energy
  • Dodd-Frank, derivative accounting and other surprisingly manageable bête noires
  • Direct Access Service
  • Green Tariffs

Please join us for this timely discussion of new ideas and transaction structures for procuring renewable energy.

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: $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.
