  • Evolution of the European energy markets. Spring 2021
  • Main novelties in the regulation of the energy sector
  • Financing of renewable energy projects
  • The importance of the PPAs
  • Business opportunities abroad

The European electricity markets recovered after the falls registered at the start of the COVID‑19 pandemic and the financing of the renewable energy projects was not affected. In the webinar the future prospects of the energy markets from the spring 2021 will be analysed.

The financing of the renewable energy projects will also be analysed taking into account the experience of EY, one of the “Big Four” and therefore one of the world leaders in consulting, financial advice and model auditing. EY participated in hundreds of transactions for renewable energy projects in the last years. In the webinar, a summary of the current financial conditions for renewable energy projects in the Spanish market based on the experience and market intelligence gained by EY in the transactions advised in the last years will be presented. In four different blocks, projects under the regulatory framework of RD 413/2014, projects with PPAs, pure merchant risk projects and projects recently awarded in the last REER tender will be covered.

Furthermore, in the webinar the most relevant regulations and roadmaps related to the deployment of the renewable energies in Spain in the coming future and an update of the European Funds will be analysed.

Other topics to be addressed are the international opportunities for the Spanish renewable energy players, with special attention to the regions with the highest profitability, and the ongoing expansion and geographic diversification of the European utilities, developers and large oil and gas companies in different renewable energy markets with promising prospects.
