About This Course

Course Overview:

This 60-minute e-learning course has been developed by the Infrastructure, Energy, Resources and Projects Practice at Hogan Lovells, in response to feedback from our local law firm partners on the ground. It provides an introduction to understanding the foundations of bankability of power purchase agreements in Africa.

The session will help you to:

  • Understand the hallmarks of a bankable Power Purchase Agreement in Africa
  • Recognise the impact of specific risks on the bankability of infrastructural arrangements
  • Identify how Power Purchase Agreements impact upon the complex web of contractual relationships within a typical independent power production arrangement.

In this course, you’ll watch videos, complete activities, and engage with real-world case study scenarios to broaden your understanding of this complex practice area.
