Renewable Energy > Economic & Financial Analysis of Renewable Energy, Storage and Hydrogen – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

This 5 half-day Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course will discuss the analysis of different renewable technologies including LCOE, financing, resource analysis and pricing. The course will be hands-on where participants take turns sharing their screens and demonstrate how they can construct renewable analysis that incorporates a variety of economic and financing issues. The course places an emphasis on the practical techniques using current data.

  • Incorporate storage and battery analysis in the analysis of renewable energy from an energy storage perspective and from an ancillary service point of view.
  • Learn practical tools to analyze renewable energy including efficient tools to work with wind, hydro and solar data; creating flexible scenario and sensitivity analysis to evaluate resource risk, construction risk, O&M risk and debt structuring; developing techniques to resolve circular references related to funding debt and sculpting debt without copy and paste macros.
  • Understand the implications of project finance features in the context of renewable energy (sculpting, debt funding, debt size, DSCR, DSRA, debt tenor, re-financing) on costs and equity returns from renewable energy.
  • Develop efficient ways to quickly compute the levelized electricity cost of different technologies using carrying charge factors and alternative financial models.
  • Work through resource assessments and compute probability of achieving different levels of production (P90, P75 etc.) using hands-on exercises for different types of projects in order to effectively review consulting studies.
  • Create flexible and transparent financial models of renewable energy from A-Z that incorporate resource risk, financing structure, tax treatments, alternative pricing policies and other factors.
  • Evaluate the economics of renewable energy (including ancillary services) in the context of merchant markets and review the structure of corporate PPA contracts.

The VILT will be delivered online in 5 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 2 x 10 minutes break per day, including time for lectures, discussion, quizzes and short classroom exercises.

Additionally, some self-study will be requested. Participants are invited but not obliged to bring a short presentation (10 mins max) on a practical problem they encountered in their work. This will then be explained and discussed during the VILT. A short test or quiz will be held at the end the course.
