Getting More Energy Projects Approved with Concise and Compelling Financials
Thursday, October 28, 2021 (8:30 AM - 3:00 PM) (PDT)
This workshop explores how to present concise and compelling cost/benefit analyses when seeking funding for energy projects. We will explore the following topics: Understanding, calculating, and explaining net present value, modified rate of return, and savings-to-investment ratio; Coaching projects to think more clearly about the relative benefits of paying with all cash, phasing implementation over multiple years, and using an "as-a-service" option; and using six creative ways to express the "cost of waiting" more powerfully. This program is appropriate for all energy professionals, whether or not they have a background in financial analysis.
