Orrick is proud to once again sponsor Infocast’s 2019 Wind Power Finance & Investment Summit. Chris Moore will be moderating a summit panel on Thursday, February 7, titled, “The Post-2020 Landscape: How Will Wind Compete Without the 100% PTC.” Panelists will include Mark Goodwin, President and CEO of Apex Clean Energy; Tommy Greer, Director of Origination in North America for EDP Renewables North America; David Reamer, President of Geronimo Energy; David Sale, CEO of Goldwind Americas; and John Woody, Vice President of Business Development for Clearway Energy Group.
Infocast’s wind summit is a valuable resource for the wind industry. Each year, the industry’s leading developers, investors, lenders, turbine suppliers, advisers and other players gather to gain valuable insights into industry trends, get the latest market update on the finance and investment landscape and efficiently schedule rounds of private meetings.
Chris has extensive experience representing project developers, sponsors and investors in the renewable energy sector in complex tax equity and debt financings and other significant transactions. He has represented many of the major project developers, sponsors and investors in the independent energy sector in both project finance and corporate transactions, and is regularly responsible for structuring complex financings.
His practice focuses on financing renewable energy projects with a particular emphasis on tax equity transactions with and without construction and back-leverage debt. Chris's experience includes structuring and documenting tax equity transactions (e.g., disproportionate partnership flip and other structures utilizing PTCs and ITC), a wide variety of debt financings (including construction, back-leverage, holdco, and other types of portfolio financings) and leasing transactions (both single investor and leverage leases).
With more than 25 years in the energy and power sector and over 20 years in the renewables market, Chris represents many of the leading and most active players in the renewable sector and the power market generally. Having been across the table from almost all the tax equity and debt participants in the renewables market, Chris’s deep understanding of their motivations and objectives enables him to anticipate their concerns. While Chris typically represents sponsors, developers and strategic investors, he has also represented public power authorities, electric cooperatives and other types of investors.
