    Overview

    Emerging market economies urgently need to master the key techniques, models, and lessons learned for transforming to renewable generation while strengthening today’s energy markets. These include the latest models in negotiating Renewable Power Purchase Agreements (RPPAs), and in designing and managing new competitive power markets, as well as attracting new private investments in renewable energy sources. Unlike past fossil-fuel based Independent Power Project (IPP) models that featured standardized take-or-pay contracts – today’s renewable energy markets demand more innovative incentives to ensure clearer availability, better system reliability, as well as more attractive and sustainable mixtures of fuel sources. Across Asia, Governments need to structure clearer incentives for new private investments into renewable technologies including

    wind power, solar energy, bio-mass incineration and mini-hydro investments.

    This practical 3-day workshop will provide clear explanations of the new models of Renewable PPA risk allocation, of managing more competitive energy markets, and practical models for attracting new private investments into renewable energy, through a series of real case examples of PPA contracts, transactions, and markets. Case Studies will include real examples from Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

    Benefits of Attending

    • Use best practices from international case studies of successful Renewable PPAs and avoid common pitfalls
    • Direct the legal design of Renewable PPAs based upon your own company’s risk profile
    • Lead strategies for the design and regulation of new electricity markets to attract renewable private power investments
    • Develop clear incentives for bankable new private investments in renewable energy generation
    • Environmental & social impact mitigation techniques to structure sustainable private investments in renewable energy generation
    • Manage and oversee successful renewable power project finance transactions

    Teaching Methodology

    The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples and data are utilized wherever helpful.

    Overview

    Today, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) projects are uniquely challenging. Parties

    currently involved in large complex and fast-track EPC projects frequently suffer financial loss that

    could have been mitigated by effective contract management. Appropriate practical “know-how”

    of EPC contracts will improve your ability to take appropriate steps, or to obtain necessary advice,

    to minimize or manage such risks.

    This intensive workshop provides valuable insight into the rapidly evolving world of EPC contracts. It

    has been designed specifically for the professionals and management of energy industries and will be of particular interest to those with current or planned projects in Asia, Africa, Middle East, Europe and the CIS.

    You will analyse an EPC contract, clause by clause, focusing on your challenges in international and

    domestic projects. This unique interactive master class discusses the key issues in EPC contracts which are relevant for lenders, sponsors and borrowers in international construction projects and the keys to deliver successful projects.

    Course Highlights

    • Global and local legal and commercial framework in Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe and the CIS
    • Contract negotiation best practices
    • Tips on contractual risk mitigation
    • Contract financing and project structuring
    • Contractor relationship management
    • Clause-by-clause discussion based on an actual contract precedent

    Key Learning Objectives

    • UNDERSTAND the current finance market for EPC contracts
    • MANAGE legal risks and environment for EPC contracts in the region
    • DISCOVER alternative procurement options for projects and the risks and opportunities associated with these options
    • DISTINGUISH new and effective contract negotiation strategies
    • ANALYSE the types of claims that may be made under EPC contracts and develop strategies to manage these claims
    • GAIN INSIGHTS into the best current dispute resolution options and the risks and costs associated with each option
