What is the value of your Geothermal Project Development? - Putting value on project risk in the geothermal sector.

Gunnar Tryggvason

In the different countries various support schemes were developed by the state to stimulate the geothermal development. This also guarantees a continous project development. Very popular are feed-in tariffs and risk insurance schemes for initiating the geothermal development. One of the question arising is how long a public feed-in tariff should be prolonged and sould ther be a slight degression or a sudden end of the support? This will be presented and discussed with examples from different countries, lead by EGEC.

Countries in the focus are:

  • France
  • Germany
  • Turkey
  • Indonesia
  • France

The country risks and especially the geological risk are the main challenges for developers and investors to face. In particular with respect to long development periods the question "How to handle risks?" arises - this will also be the focus in this session. Speakers from private companies, public bodies and donors give their views and introduce programms for de-risking geothermal.

PT SMI's role in Geothermal Energy Development in Indonesia

After developping a geothermal field, financing the first well is one of the biggest bottlenecks due to the high risk of success. Here also a smaller well size might be cost saving and reasonable for collecting experiences of the geothermal site. In this session financing models for the first stage of a geothermal project are introduced in a panel discussion with various early stage investors. But also for the exit and project finance will be considered with Due Dilligence and Best pracitce examples which are presented and discussed.

Many countires have excellent geothermal conditions. However, electricity prices do not coincide with the development cost of geothermal energy. One possibility to solve such challenges might be a closer cooperation between public finance institutions and private equity. Here development banks, donors and investors are invited to discuss about cooperations.
