Wind Energy Finance Forum

Tuesday, 15 March 2011

Despite nagging uncertainty in European financial sector, 2010 saw creative solutions for financing clean energy projects.

The Wind Energy Finance Forum at Europe’s premier wind energy event gave delegates the latest information on a wide range of finance topics and the opportunity to engage in dialogue with the key players involved in financing, insuring and assessing the value of wind energy developments.

What was discussed?

  • The current state of play for financing wind projects
  • Looking ahead: what will drive future growth?
  • Public funding in unstable markets: strategies and business models of the key players
  • Debt: The financing needs of today's offshore wind power sector
  • Raising equity for on and offshore projects, as well as the supply chain

"I am delighted to be part of this year's Finance Forum. Once again, EWEA is providing conference delegates with a series of high-quality sessions designed to give an insight into the forthcoming challenges and trends in the complex world of international finance, and how they will affect the wind energy sector."

Andrew Perkins

"A crucial issue for the wind energy sector is the question of where the money is coming from? The Finance Forum at EWEA 2011 will bring finance experts and wind energy professionals together to explore the latest financing issues affecting the development of both onshore and offshore wind, as well as the supply chain."
Andrew Perkins, Partner, Ernst & Young

Klaus Rave

"In 2010, we saw for the first time non-OECD countries driving the growth of the industry. What impact does that have on its financing? As the industry becomes truly global, and projects that continue to grow in scale, the challenges are mounting for financiers, who are still recovering from the financial crisis. The 2011 edition of the Finance Forum will discuss how best to deal with these new challenges."
Klaus Rave, Chairman, Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) & WKN AG, Germany
