Grants, Guarantees & Other Renewable Energy Tax Credit Benefits

Event type: 

Times are Eastern Daylight Time

This webinar will provide an examination of how to take advantage of these new grant and tax credit provisions.

 As large institutions ceased investing in the renewable energy project Production Tax Credit (PTC) and Investment Tax Credit (ITC), incentives vital to the successful financing of renewable energy projects, the government stepped in with a panoply of mainly tax-driven stimulus facilities. How can project developers and financiers best take advantage of Treasury Grant, loan guarantee, PTC and ITC provisions in structuring and financing renewable energy projects?

The speakers will explain:

  • What the new benefits are, including election for ITC in lieu of PTC, election for cash grants in lieu of ITC, repeal of certain limitations on ITC, and extension of business depreciation
  • Common structuring ideas for wind, solar, geothermal and biomass projects
  • Current activity in the DOE Loan Guarantee program
  • Where the cash grant program is headed, and what issues remain
