Program Materials

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

Description

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

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

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