Fast Track Energy Projects: How to Build, Execute and Deliver

Our nation’s current focus toward power production, clean energy technologies, and infrastructure development is not a passing trend. Over the next 20 years, in fact, hundreds of billions of dollars will be invested and spent on new initiatives in these sectors. But getting them built in our highly competitive and complex society is never easy since they are fraught with risk: political, economic, environmental and construction, to name just a few.

This pragmatic short course provides a high-level overview to those organizations facing the challenge of getting energy-related projects built. It is particularly directed to public agencies, power-production companies, industry consultants, and attorneys who may have specialized expertise with energy technologies, but limited exposure to the dozens of other components that are essential to insuring successful project execution and delivery. Sessions will integrate the various issues that must be considered when entering into these vital but expensive projects, and will emphasize how to avoid unfavorable outcomes that often plague them, such as cost overruns, schedule delays, third-party meddling, heightened regulatory scrutiny, smeared reputations and - worst of all - bankruptcy.

  • The feasibility and permitting process
