Infocast, the Recognized Leader in Solar Finance, Announces First Ever Solar Securitization Event this September in New York

Network With All of the Players in the Solar Finance Community, From Deal Origination to Securities Distribution and Help Make Solar Securitization a Reality

Woodland Hills, CA July 17, 2013


Infocast, recognized leader in solar finance with its premier Solar Power Finance & Investment Summit, brings together key dealmakers from the solar finance communityrenewable energy developers and capital providerstogether with leading asset-backed securities (ABS) investors, rating agencies and other key participants at the first ever Solar Securitization: New Opportunities in Energy Backed Securities, September 23, 2013 in New York. Join them as the most up-to-date developments in solar securitization are discussed, including how to tap into lower cost of capital by this new asset class? How rating agencies assess solar asset performance and creditworthiness? And establish the necessary connections throughout the solar finance value chain to position for success.

Solar is the fastest growing sector within renewable energy, and renewable energy is the fastest growing sector of the global power market. The renewable energy industry is estimated to need over $70 billion of capital by 2020 and the ability to put capital to work at a large scale is a great opportunity for both the renewable energy and the ABS industries. The renewable energy industry's enormous need for capital offers an attractive investment opportunity and solar securitization is the answer.

However, for solar securitization to happen, the solar industry and the asset-backed securities sector must work together to resolve many questions. These include: How rating agencies view this new asset class? How much historical performance data is needed? What is the optimal size for a solar bond issuance that will attract investors? How will ABS investors assess the value of assets such as power purchase agreements or leases? Only those with the latest information on this new and evolving process, as well as the necessary contacts throughout the solar finance value chain, from deal origination to securities distribution, will be able to position themselves for success.

"This is the premier event for solar financing."
"Best forum to meet and network with market leaders in the solar finance community."

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
