Products for Clean Energy Sellers

Harnessing the wind and the sun to generate energy is a high-risk, capital-intensive business. Efficient, effective risk management is critical to ensuring that new projects can secure capital commitments and that operating projects can meet the demands of existing investors and potential acquirers.

As the renewable energy industry evolves beyond the utility PPA model, the scale and complexity of risks faced by projects is ever-increasing. REsurety has pioneered the development and commercialization of a new suite of risk management tools that provide renewable energy project developers and owners with unprecedented control over future cash flow certainty.

Proxy Revenue Swap

A renewable energy project can choose where to build and how to operate. However, it has no control over how much fuel (wind speed or sunshine) shows up in a given year, what average power prices will be or how well hourly fuel volumes will correlate with energy prices. A Proxy Revenue Swap hedging contract provides renewable energy projects with protection against exposure to these uncontrollable risks.

Under a Proxy Revenue Swap, a renewable energy project exchanges its variable revenue stream for a fixed payment - providing an unprecedented level of cash flow certainty.

Balance of Hedge

A common tool to hedge energy price risk - and its impact on the revenues of an energy generation asset - is a fixed volume energy price swap. This hedge structure, often called "Bank Hedge" or "P99 Hedge", is an excellent tool for managing a project's exposure to future commodity markets. However, these contracts increase a project's exposure to the weather.

Hedging the variable volume of generation of a renewable energy project with a fixed volume swap means that the project will constantly be buying power during generation shortfalls and selling power during generation spikes. A Balance of Hedge contract enables a renewable energy project to exchange that uncertain stream of value for a fixed amount.

Custom

Every renewable energy project is different, and value comes in many forms: energy markets, capacity markets, environmental attributes, tax credits... All of those various streams of value have one thing in common: they are dependent on the weather due to the intermittent nature of renewable energy generation.  

REsurety has pioneered the development of products and services to enable efficient and effective risk management for renewable energy projects. Does your project face a risk that doesn't fit into the products featured above? Give us a call - we'd love to learn more.
