Project Finance

Project Finance Module

In the past, it was the case that the high costs involved with setting up loan finance for energy projects tended to favour large (£million plus) schemes, but there are now a number of different sources of finance aimed at smaller projects. However, whatever the scale, the basics of project finance will remain the same.

This module is organised into the following sections:

  1. Overview: funding each stage of development
  2. Steps to Obtaining Project Finance:

    i. Early stage finance

    ii. Assessing Financial Viability

    iii. Project Finance Options

    iv. Financial Close Obtaining Project Finance

  3. The Basics of Finance
  4. Further Information

For each stage, different sources of finance are available.
