Navigate economic volatility and industry challenges with our useful 2-1/2 day training seminar, Principles of Valuation in the Power Sector, which includes a Renewable Energy Valuation Workshop.
This is a comprehensive introduction to the essential concepts and methodologies needed for valuations of assets and power generators.

As an attendee, you will:
Learn how to value individual power plants (including renewable assets) and whole companies
Be able to identify valuation frameworks, specific and practical to the US power sector
Understand value drivers for utilities and individual power plants
Gain skills needed to confidently perform due diligence of valuation assumptions
Walk away with models and techniques that have direct application to the power sector
This program is designed for:
Finance, investor relations, or corporate strategy/development professionals at power or gas companies
Professionals in investment banking, project finance, asset management, hedge funds, or equity/ fixed income research
Consultants, accountants and lawyers who advise power and gas clients
Current and potential investors, suppliers, or professionals looking for an understanding of how Wall Street analyzes the power and gas sector and the fundamentals that bear on their analyses
Attend our optional Renewable Energy Valuation Workshop on June 21.
Learn about key financial topics and specific tactics for computing ROE more effectively in the renewable space. This workshop is valuable for anyone involved in renewables, including utilities analysts, renewables developers, investment banking analysts, and modelers.
