Financial Modelling for Renewable Energy Projects

  • 5/5
  • 4 days in person
  • 8 half days online

The perfect course for those working on renewable energy projects who need to get to grips with the construction and analysis of those models. By working through a renewable project case study, delegates will get hands-on experience learning and implementing best practice methodologies for financing a wind or solar plant project. 

Course Overview

What to Expect

The course has two levels: 

Modelling techniques – 2 days
Starting from a blank spreadsheet, delegates will lsetup the model and main cash flow drivers
Revenue, Opex, Working Capital, Capex and depreciation, Tax (including tax losses), basic funding structure (Senior debt + Equity), Interest and Dividends.
Once all cash flows are calculated and the balance sheet balancing, NPVs and IRRs are evaluated and sensitised using data tables.

 

Extended Techniques – 2 days
This level is focused on the funding structure of the model used on the first level.
The delegates will start by building an Audit sheet to implement checks across the model.
Once different debt service cover ratios are calculated (DSCR, ADSCR, LLCR and rolling LLCR) the delegates will then replace some of the equity by a subordinated debt loan.
Once the funding structure is defined, a Cash Waterfall is built as well as a Debt Service Reserve Account (DSRA).
The course concludes with work on the Senior debt loan by implementing a debt sculpting mechanism (using VBA macros).

Please note that the remote courses run on an half-day basis.
