Topic:Project Finance Talent Development for Offshore Wind Power / 國銀離岸風電專案融資人才養成及訓練之探討

In Taiwan the geographic environment provides an abundance of wind energy, which also presents a significant opportunity for investors in the off-shore wind farm market. However, to develop off-shore wind power, Taiwan still faces lots of challenges, including the financing problem. An off-shore wind project will be bankable, only if its uncertainties are reduced and risks are mitigated. But, Taiwanese banks are learning off-shore wind power under very limited information, and thus hesitate to provide financial services to off-shore wind farms in Taiwan. One of the solutions that the financial authority figures out would be talent training, educating local bankers about off-shore wind power. A training program shall aim to equip bankers with the capacity to structure financing solutions and sufficient technical sophistication to manage potential risks leading to material loss. With this mind, the program intends to deep dive into every aspect that bankers need to understand to roll out adequate financing strategy that commensurate with the nature of risks incurred by offshore wind project. The training topics covered include project certification, insurance protection, marine warranty survey, financial analysis, risk management, due diligence, guidance for effective operational audits, and legal documentation/legal contracts (such purchasing power agreements, EPC contracts, etc.). Each course is expected to be case-based and help financial practitioners to develop practical insights from real world applications of project finance in the off-shore wind power area.
