Trends and Issues in Renewable Energy Mergers and Acquisitions

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

As the U.S. renewable energy industry continues to scale, the pace of market consolidation and innovation is driving the next round of merger and acquisition activity.   Renewable energy assets -- including development, technology and construction services companies -- are changing hands as market players extract value and capitalize using yield companies and other tools to finance the next round of growth.  In this webinar, market leaders will discuss M&A key drivers and trends, and the issues emerging in M&A agreements.  What will the impact of this increased M&A activity be on market growth?  Will new sources of capital demand higher returns from the same stream of revenues?   What are the trends and predictions for activity in the sector?  How can sellers optimize the value of their assets?  How can buyers target the best values for their money?
