Renewables Sector Outlook in Spain - Threats and Opportunities

Spain has to approve the new parameters for the next regulatory period:

- Could the new reasonable rate of return bring stability to the sector?

- Will there be refinancing opportunities?

The sector is facing a new reality with the development of new capacity with merchant risk:

- What are the risks and opportunities that investors see in merchant renewable energy projects in Spain and to what extent investors / lenders are comfortable with merchant risk?

- Has the market sufficient capacity for financing the pipeline of merchant projects in Spain?

- Will long term corporate PPAs (or any other alternative product) be a solution and what is the market capacity for PPAs?

At this IPFA event we will discuss these and other topics in a diverse panel comprising sector specialists as well as investors, sharing their observations. Join us to hear more on Spanish renewables outlook and regulatory framework as well as to receive first hand briefings on renewable energy projects from sector experts.
