Every power project is embedded in a cobweb of contractual agreements with the many stakeholders related to it. It is essential for the successful development, finance, construction and operation of a power project to clearly view the interrelationships between all those agreements and how they influence each other. Just like tearing one string of a cobweb on one side will have an impact on all the other strings attached to the core of it, to reach a holistic negotiation of those agreements, it is crucial to have a clear overview and understanding of the various risks involved in the power project and how to allocate it. Much will depend on the profile of the stakeholders involved and even more so on the country and market context the project is located.

This hands-on 3-day course on Power Contracts and Negotiation will navigate through the entire panorama of the different agreements using real world contract examples. You will be pushed to analyse the legal documents and reveal the interrelations they impose to the risk assessment of the project. The course will be enriched with pragmatic tools and case studies to discuss the importance of the various aspects of the negotiation process and showcasing that there is no one-size fits all approach to it. You will leave with the skills to identify red flags in your own business situation and enabled to find the optimal solution to it.

What People Are Saying

❛❛ I highly recommend the course. This was one of the best training courses I’ve
ever had. The knowledge I got at the course were all very practical. ❜❜
Mitsubishi Electric
❛❛ Despite coming from the Energy Industry myself, I found the class extremely informative. It was a real masterclass and worth the fee. Trainer combines theory with real life examples and practical exercises. He covers strategic, commercial, technical and legal aspects. This brings the subject to life. The course material is very well developed and, thanks to his deep knowledge of the subject, he can digress and zoom in and out of topics to suit his audience. It’s been a very useful and very enjoyable 3 days, which flew by! ❜❜
