Spanish renewables developer Grupo Enhol has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with power and gas supplier Factorenergia for two wind farms totalling 90MW. The wind farms will have 27 turbines and sell their entire production, estimated at 320GWh per year, at a fixed price to Factorenergia. The wind farms do not benefit from the auctions held by Spain last year and will not receive government support.

2018 saw a slow start to the year in terms of project finance volumes, according to the Thomson Reuters Project Finance International league tables. A range of mega deals are currently in the market across the world, so activity should pick up in the second half. But the first half has had a quiet feel to it, as shown in the tables.
The global infrastructure market is moving into new territories - both geographically and sector wise. PFI’s Global Infrastructure Report 2018 takes look at the new kids on the block and in addition, some of the legacies from the old era. The Report carries case studies on deals as diverse as German fibre optic, the Canakkale Bridge and the Los Angeles people mover scheme. In addition it carries in depth pieces on the construction woes which befell Carillion and the Canadian super hospitals.
Developments in the LNG market and the spread of increasingly cheap renewable technology are dominating the global energy market. PFI’s Global Energy Report 2018 examines the driving forces behind these and other trends through case studies of landmark deals and articles on important market shifts. The report looks at new technology such as energy storage and new funding options for renewables.
The crush for deals has pushed investors into taking bigger stakes and pushing terms further into neverland. A logical response would be to back away but the reverse has become true.
