PwC uses it’s network of local PwC offices to gain the necessary market know-how.

    • Marcus Hinrich Fischer, Erste Bank Group
      Project financing & development, why beginning at an early stage
      Structuring project finance of wind energy in Austria and Central Eastern Europe as the home market of Erste Group Bank AG: Focussing on Poland, Croatia and Romania as the most attractive wind energy markets in CEE currently, we will have a look at Erste’s approach how to develop financial structures which make the projects bankable in the respective markets. While certain fields like wind ressource related risk are “standard”, others, like market risk as implied by quota support systems and regulatory risk, are country specific. Erste Group Bank AG has a deep understanding not only of “standard” or asset specific risks such as wind resource, but as a rather regional player rooted in Austria and CEE, also of the country related challenges for which we have been developing solutions jointly with and for our clients.

    • Clemens Plöchl, Energy Changes
      The international carbon market and the flexible mechanisms (Clean Development Mechanism CDM and Joint Implementation JI) under the Kyoto Protocol have contributed significantly to the boost of wind power development in the past 5 years in countries such as China or Serbia. Recently the focus of international climate policy has been shifting and the impact of existing project mechanisms is expected to decline. New instruments such as NAMAs and New Market Mechanisms are being designed to take over. Learn about new financing possibilities for your wind power projects.

      Energy Changes has helped to structure over 10 major windparks in CEE and SEE as CDM or JI projects and offers consulting services in relation to the new planned market mechanisms under the international climate change negotiations.
