Global Power Report 2007

  • Hot Air?

    Carbon finance, until now a thinly-populated niche, could soon affect every facet of energy finance. By Richard Garcia, senior managing director, Anadi Jauhari, managing director, and Geoffrey Lehv, associate, Natixis. [more]

  • Dimes syndicate

    The Canadian power market is experiencing huge demand for new generation assets, and provincial offtakers will offer solid long-term contracts to developers. This has encouraged, particularly with thermal projects, some aggressive approaches to closing deals. Denise Bedell reports. [more]

  • Big bad burn?

    The fundamentals of waste-to-energy technologies have improved immeasurably in recent years. But government in the UK needs to demonstrate more consistency and maintain a supportive regulatory framework. By Nathan Goode, and Charlie Saunders of Grant Thornton's waste and renewables team. [more]

  • Ambition means action

    Despite setbacks, India could have its first ultra mega power project (UMPP) financed before the end of the year. But power project risk – particularly offtake risk – needs solid mitigation under contract if more foreign sponsors are to invest in the sector. By Marcus Bensasson. [more]

  • Wind tighter

    Babcock & Brown recently closed syndication of a global refinancing of its Wind Partners portfolio. Is this the way that Babcock, and all global operators, should be financing all of its renewable assets? By Paul Smith. [more]

  • IPP in a colder climate

    The International Power business model is a holding company with a portfolio of non-recourse financed assets. The group has been a major beneficiary of the availability of cheap bank debt over the past five years – but with the price of debt set to rise can it maintain its rate of expansion? By Michael Marray. [more]

  • Easy OECD?

    Marubeni has completed a slew of large greenfield and acquisition financings in Asia and the Middle East. Does it have the resources, and bank following, to operate in more developed markets as well? Catherine McGuirk reports. [more]

  • Balance of power

    Renewable Energy Systems wants to be known as an operator as well as a builder of US wind farms. Can the US incentive regime, and US equity and debt markets, offer it what it wants? Tom Nelthorpe talks to Craig Mataczynski, president of RES Americas. [more]

  • Bank wraps back

    Project finance banks do not always compete with the bond market in providing long-dated finance for infrastructure projects. The two can sometimes be complementary. By Jim Guidera and Nick Bellamy, Calyon. [more]
