Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel involved in developing and financing utility-scale solar PV power projects, with a particular focus on the underlying engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) agreements. The panel will discuss market factors and will outline the important terms and options to address in EPC agreements.


The EPC agreement is a key component in renewable energy projects. EPC agreements for utility-scale solar PV projects are particularly challenging due to the size and the complex technology in these projects.

The terms of EPC agreements must also balance the market expectations of project finance lenders with the supply realities and terms of project vendors and contractors. Legal counsel to solar project development companies must understand the challenges, realities and expectations to structure EPC agreements that appropriately allocate risk from both the vendor and the lender perspectives.

Listen as our authoritative panel of energy attorneys examines the key issues involved in structuring and negotiating EPC agreements for PV solar facilities, offering experience-based insights on evolving industry norms and best practices.



  1. Utility-scale PV solar recent developments
  2. Contract structure issues and issues unique to solar PV
  3. Construction options
  4. EPC guarantees/warranties
  5. Key issues from the lender’s perspective


The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What are the critical provisions of EPCs for developers, lenders and vendors?
  • What strategies should be used to structure the agreements to appropriately allocate risk?
  • How can the parties and their counsel allocate risks and benefits in the long-term contract?
