Iain MacSween Gives Presentation on Financing Green Energy Projects
Opportunities Found in Tax Incentives, Financing Strategies and Beyond
Brooks Pierce partner Iain MacSween presented "Green Energy Projects: Opportunities Found in Tax Incentives, Financing Strategies, and Beyond" at DMJ Wealth Advisors on November 3.
Drawing upon his experience as former in-house counsel for a European power company, Iain discussed the financing differences between Europe and the U.S. In addition, Iain compared the two principal financing structures - partnership flip and lease - and highlighted that these structures are highly customized to fit the project requirements. Financial modeling should be utilized to determine the most efficient structure.
The program concluded with a discussion of what the future may hold for green energy projects, including the benefits of an economic recovery and proposed cap and trade legislation.
