Financing Energy Projects - Adapting to Regulatory Change and Volatile Markets
Allan Marks, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy
Description: Allan Marks, an Adjunct professor at Boalt Hall, looked at how several trends are affecting the way in which new energy facilities are being developed and financed in the United States and overseas. The talk touched on a number of key areas, including the effect of regulatory change to favor certain energy technologies, the emergence of clean energy as a "technology" play, the potential impact of new incentives to reduce carbon emissions, and the changing sources of capital for energy investments in the midst of highly volatile credit markets and dramatically rising global commodity prices.
