Due diligence is a critical part of the decision making process for all stakeholders in a project, and technical due diligence is one of its most important components. Understanding the technical risks and mitigation measures associated with the renewable energy industry is vital for lenders, investors, and other stakeholders in wind and solar projects. 

During this event, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) renewable experts will discuss their role as independent engineers during the technical due diligence process that is required for a proper evaluation of solar and wind projects. They will discuss the main concerns of lenders as well as technical and commercial issues affecting the financing of projects, along with other major considerations for investment decisions, such as grid costs, transmission issues and market risks.
