Bankability of Novel Energy Technologies (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Ralph Romero

Paper Abstract

New technologies are helping energy system owners improve performance and service to their customers while creating a sustainable energy future. But many of these new tools and processes are unproven and costly, which may hinder their large scale deployment. This talk will address the topic of new technology bankability and how owners, technology providers and financial institutions assess their risk exposure before embarking on significant projects. The talk will focus on the lessons learned from the rapid growth of the photovoltaic industry and discuss areas where technology risk should be further reduced.
