Event Summary:

IPFA UK: London: The Future of Energy-from-Waste

TO REGISTER: please scroll down to the bottom of this webpage and click 'Book'

Energy-from-Waste (EfW) continues to be an appealing area of infrastructure for investors, with facilities expanding to deal with the need to divert waste from landfills. Add to this the recent restriction on imports of certain wastes by China and it’s clear the sector is an attractive opportunity for investors as they complement portfolios using intermittent renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar. Despite its growing importance in the energy supply mix, EfW facilities continue to face a number of challenges, most notably completing construction, securing feedstock and managing multiple contracts with a range of counterparties.

What are the risks and opportunities that investors see in EfW projects and to what extent new projects are riskier compared with those in operation? Will waste feedstock be available in the long term in light of looming regulatory changes focused on promoting circular economy and increasing recycling? What are the prospects of less established waste treatment technologies? How can EfW be structured to be more ‘bankable’? Fitch Ratings’ analysts will discuss these and other topics in a diverse panel comprising of sector specialists as well investors, sharing their observations from rated EfW transactions.
