Energy Series Background Decorative image

Successful infrastructure development projects require long-term planning and a coordinated approach. There are certain pitfalls and oversights in project development that can subsequently create significant obstacles to achieving a successful infrastructure project. Financing considerations can create an additional set of issues that must be addressed early on in order to avoid complications when seeking non or limited recourse financing.

This presentation will cover how to identify the obstacles and issues related to infrastructure and development projects, including related financing considerations. The presentation will also touch on contracting strategies to avoid or address, and ways to overcome, such obstacles and issues early on.
