Infocus International Announces the New Dates for Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements Online Course

Back by popular demand, Infocus International Group has announced the new dates for the Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (RE PPAs) online workshop that will be commencing live on the 7th of June 2022.
Unlike past fossil-fuel based Independent Power Project (IPP) models that featured standardized take-or-pay contracts – today’s renewable energy markets demand more innovative incentives to attract RE supply, conform to RE generation availability, ensure power system reliability, as well as more attractive and sustainable mixtures of fuel sources. This interactive 5-session workshop will provide clear explanations of the new models of RE PPAs risk allocation, of ensuring project bankability, of allowing RE generators to compete in energy markets and power pools.

The practical models for RE investment credit enhancements will be demonstrated through a series of real case examples of RE PPA contracts, renewable project finance transactions, and competitive energy markets. Case Studies will include real examples from Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

Furthermore, this online workshop features a dynamic combination of experiential exercises and practical case studies to reinforce the ability of participants to actually apply RE PPA analysis, structuring, and negotiation techniques to real transactions.

Experiential exercises will place participants into the practical roles of key management decision-makers who not only need to analyse and understand RE PPAs investment proposals, but who have to negotiate practical RE PPA terms & clauses and to make real-world decisions on transactions. As a result of actively engaging in this workshop’s interactive methodology, participants will be able to make practical decisions on renewable power transactions for participant’s organization following the workshop’s completion.

Past participant from European Bank for Reconstruction and Development shared, “A well delivered course and trainer with deep experience. Particularly valuable sessions included the group work negotiating a PPA.”

“The course was very detailed and the presenter has a wealth of experience allowing him to give us very relevant eye-opening examples and case studies,” said a past participant from ZESA Holdings.

Join us now and learn the practical models and techniques for analysing & structuring, drafting, and negotiating Renewable Energy PPAs for bankable green investments in today’s competitive energy markets.

Infocus International Introduces a Brand-New Online Workshop on Dispatchable & Flexible Solar Power

Infocus International Group has launched a brand new online workshop – Dispatchable & Flexible Solar Power and it will be commencing live on the 28th of March 2022.
A business-focused training course designed to provide business developers with an accessible and concise, yet comprehensive understanding into how advanced utility-scale solar power projects are providing greater value to the industry, its investors and energy system planners alike.

‘Dispatchable’ solar power projects are crucial to the scalability of solar within energy systems, increasing its ability to replace conventional thermal power capacity while maintaining power system flexibility and resilience. Compared to traditional solar-only projects, new considerations include the components required and the project design, development and integration processes involved. Understanding the market drivers and new revenue opportunities that such hybrid, multi-technology projects create are key to making the business case.

This course will lead attendees through the technologies, processes and financial return and risk considerations for those involved in dispatchable solar project development, with a particular focus on solar + storage. Explanations will be provided in clear, business-friendly language accessible to non-engineers. If you need a valuable, up-to-the-minute and independent introduction to these crucial trends in the future development of solar power projects, this online course provides a unique learning opportunity.

Course Sessions

Market trends and business cases driving ‘dispatchable’ solar power

Infocus International Announces Online Training on LNG Supply, Demand, Pricing & Trading

Infocus International Group, a global business intelligence provider, has confirmed the new date for its highly recommended LNG Supply, Demand, Pricing & Trading online training. The online training is back with a new agenda and it will be commencing live on 19 January 2022.
2021 has been a year of recovery for LNG demand as governments of importing countries have relaxed some of the restrictions imposed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and economic recovery has started. However, the growth in LNG supply has been curtailed by unscheduled maintenance at some of the world’s liquefaction plants and by shortfalls in feedgas supply at others. The result has been a tightening of the supply demand balance causing LNG and natural gas prices to surge reaching over $25/MMBtu in September 2021. It is a very different market to 2020, when demand fell because of the pandemic and supply increased as output built up from liquefaction trains commissioned in 2019 and the first half of 2020, which led to LNG and natural gas prices in Asia and Europe declining to $2/MMBtu in the middle of the year. At this level, prices were below the short-run marginal cost of US LNG exports and around 180 US cargoes were cancelled.

Energy transition has brought increased demands for the LNG business to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in all parts of the LNG chain from natural gas production through to the combustion of regasified LNG in downstream markets. It raises questions over LNG’s role in the long-term energy supply. Will demand increase as natural gas replaces coal in power generation and is used as a back-up fuel for renewables or will natural gas be seen as a fossil fuel whose consumption has to be reduced if targets of net zero carbon emissions are to be met?

The online course will, over six sessions, provide an overview of the LNG business in 2022 with a commercial focus but technology and shipping will also be covered. It will consider the outlook for the business over the period to 2040 in terms of markets, sources of supply, pricing and trading and the response to energy transition. It is designed not only for newcomers to LNG but also those who want to refresh their knowledge or who have experience in one part of the business or one region and want to widen their knowledge.

Head of Department of Aqualectra shared, “The presenter was very clear and the content was communicated very well with many examples and was really very topical. I learned a lot during these sessions and will pass this on. Thanks again.”

“Excellent overview of the LNG industry end-to-end. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about the industry,” said Senior Business Analyst of Murphy Exploration and Production.

Check out the LNG online course new agenda at www.infocusinternational.com/lng-online.
