Financing offshore wind in an auction environment
When: Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 14:00 - 15:15
Where: Auditorium 1
The method of awarding public support for wind projects in Europe has largely moved to competitive auctions. This session will consider how auctions across Europe affect financial decisions and how finance structures can help reduce cost for developers and win tenders. Panellists will also consider financing new technologies such as floating wind and consider if structures which are currently available will be sufficient to bridge the ‘technology risk gap’.
