Partner and Chairman of the Summit, Jeff Chester will moderate a panel of financiers that will provide an update on the key trends in tax equity and deal structuring.

  • Is the supply of tax equity going up? Are existing tax equity investors doing more or are new investors entering the market?
  • Who are the most active types of investors in the current tax-equity market?
  • Will tax syndication play a more important role in the future?
  • What are tax equity investors’ views on evolving corporate PPA terms? How do they get comfortable with the risks? What new issues are surfacing in transactions and how are they being addressed?
  • How is the uncertainty around tax reform impacting transactions?—structures, pricing, other deal terms? How are deals being mitigated? How is it being handled from a modeling standpoint?
  • With the value of the PTC greater than the value of power on a present value basis and IRR less important than cash flow for some developers, how is this changing the way deals our structured? What are the changes to traditional structures and how is that affecting the ability to bring investors into deals. How do you get tax equity done in this environment?
  • Are rising interest rates and fewer projects affecting target yield rates?
