A well formulated financial model is a clear reflection of key business assumptions that can be applied to test scenarios and predict potential financial outcomes.

These outcomes are then used to perform investment appraisals and make informed business decisions.

Applying Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) methodology with outputs like Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) and other ratios and parameters provides basis for decision-making with respect to in- vestment, structuring of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), and ranking of individual projects or project alternatives.
Financial modelling is a proven essential for project finance transactions as it plays an important role in project evaluation.



Participants will be provided with the skills to efficiently develop, modify, and analyse financial models for projects in the power generation sector.
