Morrison & Foerster's Cleantech practice group and CORE are pleased to invite you to our Annual Cleantech Roadshow Seminar.

Program Overview
Financing is a crucial component of any successful renewable energy project, especially during difficult economic times. For many capital intensive technologies in the wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal sectors, innovative project finance techniques make large scale deployment possible. Join us for a discussion of the various financing structures available and the current and future financing trends.

Renewable energy projects rely on traditional financing methods, such as debt and private equity sources, but they often incorporate innovative new approaches to these transactions. In addition, renewable energy financing is increasingly drawn from government resources, through Department of Energy grants, loan guarantees, and tax incentives. This panel will explain the existing renewable finance options, discuss the benefits and disadvantages of various financing methods, and provide guidance on the efficient use and monetization of tax and other government incentives. In addition, the panel will explore how renewable energy finance has been impacted by the economic recession and will make predictions about future financing trends that are expected to accompany the economic rebound.

This program will consist of a moderated panel of finance experts who provide insight from the legal, investor, and company perspectives.
