With wholesale electricity prices falling to their lowest level for a decade, it is vital that energy investors address threats to the financial performance of energy assets. One of the most effective ways for investors and asset managers to do this is to ensure that legal obligations are pro-actively managed.
Getting it right means understanding your key legal obligations and taking steps to mitigate associated risk factors; getting it wrong can result in increased overheads, underperforming assets and, in the worst case scenarios, assets being shut down altogether.
Topics covered include:
- Optimisation of assets: effective O&M and the construction interface
- How much do we need to check and what does good health and safety management look like
- Mitigating property costs and overheads
- Keeping on top of your contracts, including variation, novation and assignment
