    Seminar | International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    PPP activity in Belgium has slowed down in the past years despite an urgent need for public infrastructure. However; several recent developments may contribute to PPPs’ renaissance in Belgium in the coming years. The goal of this event is to discuss a number of positive factors and ideas that provide new opportunities for PPPs in Belgium.

  • IPFA Webinar: Managing Public Private Partnerships after Financial Close

    Seminar | International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    While attention on PPPs and concessions often focusses on the ability to attract finance and achieve financial close: less attention is usually given to the subsequent management of projects through construction and operations. If the public is to receive the full benefit of the infrastructure services that PPP projects can deliver: governments need to pay close attention to contract management. This includes ensuring that PPP contract management teams are well-resourced: and that adequate training is provided to the officials responsible for handling both day-to-day management issues: such as performance monitoring and application of payment deductions: and the significant challenges that can arise with PPP projects: such as disputes and renegotiation.

  • IPFA Webinar: Infrastructure Debt: Project Finance vs Corporate Debt

    Seminar | International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    Institutional investors have been steadily increasing their exposure to private infrastructure debt investment in recent years as they search for yield: seek to diversify their portfolios and find a better asset/liability match. Private infrastructure debt can be categorised into two sub-sets: infrastructure project debt and infrastructure corporate debt. As we begin to carve out a distinct asset class for private infrastructure debt the question is: is there a difference between the two?

  • IPFA West Africa: Lagos: Private Investment in Infrastructure: The States as Enablers

    Seminar | International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    There is a significant gap between Nigeria’s infrastructure needs and the funding available from the Nigerian government for infrastructure projects. Private investment in infrastructure projects is a viable means of bridging the gap. With Lagos State recently announcing that the state is at the final stage of selecting a new bidder for the 4th Mainland Bridge project: this event focuses on what Nigerian states can do to encourage private investment in infrastructure. This event will feature panel discussions between key public and private stakeholders.

  • IPFA South Africa: Johannesburg: Is Embedded Generation the Future of Power Supply in Africa?

    Seminar | International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    International Project Finance Association (IPFA)

    Embedded generation is the small-scale production of power connected within the electricity distribution network: located close to the place of consumption. For example: a typical solar system of this nature will supply enough power for the daily (sunshine hours) use of a business without feeding excess power back into the grid. At night: should the business require extra power: it can use power from the grid. South African legislation makes no provision for generated electricity to be fed into the national grid outside the current REIPPP projects. With this system: a business owner/community can utilise solar technology without contravening any legislation and put a system in place which: when increased in size: could generate profits should relevant tariffs come into effect in the future.
