Webinar (Covid-19 Impact on Renewable Energy Projects)

The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented global effect on all industries including the renewable energy project development and finance sector. Join us for a virtual roundtable discussion with market leaders in the renewable energy industry, where we will address the following questions: 

  • To what extent is the pandemic causing delays in the supply chain and construction of renewable projects under development in the United States, and to what extent are parties invoking force majeure and similar contractual excuse clauses, and what effect is that having? 
  • How are supply and construction delays impacting the ability of sponsors to meet safe harbor tax protections for ITCs and PTCs? 
  • How is the pandemic affecting equity and debt financing of wind and solar developments in the short run?
  • What will the renewable energy development and finance landscape look like post-COVID?
