Financial Modelling in the Power Sector Training Course

A highly practical guide to the intricacies and nuances of Excel modelling in the power sector

11 - 13 December 2017

Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton, London

Power generation has for 3 decades been the largest sector for project financing. Particularly when the ability to support that financing is dependent solely on the cashflows generated by the individual project itself, it becomes critical that any modelling is done to an exemplary standard. In particular the model will need to robustly test for the volatility of the cashflows. Very often it is not the base case that kills, but the occurrence of conditions other than the base case over the life of the project.

Course benefits:

  • Appreciate best practice in model design and implementation
  • Identify the major modelling issues in financing and operating power plants
  • Develop and implement various worksheets of the model
  • Understand the application of best practice modelling techniques throughout the different stages of the model
  • Optimise the analysis of the power project used within the course by the use of functions and features within both excel and VBA
