Michael Eyman, Managing Director of Origis Services will be participating on the panel, Solar & Wind Developers’ Perspectives during Infocast’s ERCOT Market Summit from February 13-15, 2023 in Austin, TX. Origis Energy Services is proud to sponsor this event. ERCOT Market Summit will provide an unparalleled deep dive into impending changes, and provide serious insights into the directions they will drive the market. A stellar group of policymakers together with utility, solar, wind, IPP, finance, and trading executives will explore the tumultuous future of this massive power market, and examine the impacts on resource adequacy, power prices, project siting and bankability, and how to best meet the shifting needs of commercial, industrial, and retail customers.

 

Panel Discussion: Solar & Wind Developers’ Perspectives

Policy changes and the permitting environment are radically changing the development game in ERCOT. Local pushback on renewables in some areas is limiting siting options, while price curves have to some degree moderated as the cost of natural gas declined after the initial worldwide impacts of Ukraine. Combatting this, the various IRA incentives are increasing the financial viability of many projects. Supply chain issues have to some degree abated, but lead times for things like GSUs and breakers have increased to 2-3 years from tier 1 domestic and international OEMs.

  • This panel will address how these market forces are changing development, and how new projects are getting done.
  • How is the load growth from the entrance of data centers, new manufacturing and the influx of residential customers affecting the renewable energy market?
  • Are prices, inflation and supply chain issues affecting corporate demand for renewables?
  • How are inflation and policy risks affecting the structure of offtake agreements?
  • What impacts is tax equity transferability having?
  • How is the solar PTC having unintended consequences on the operation of assets in ERCOT?
  • Why has insurance become the vital link in financing projects, and will insurance costs reach a level that affects project viability?
