FEATURED PANELIST: Ardi Arian/ General Manager


Panel discussion (January 23- 4:00pm - 5:00pm)

Identifying Project Funding With the recent formation of CCAs around the heaviest loads in Southern California (LA and San Diego), CCAs are now effectively replacing the IOUs as the primary procurers for over 600 Megawatts over the next couple years, and more beyond. MCE has already initiated its own major projects, and other CCAs are following suit, in the case of Redwood Coast even signing a MOU for offshore wind. This panel will bring together some of the financiers who are helping enable these projects to discuss near and longer term scenarios, deal flow and terms.


Moderator: Nancy Rader, Executive Director, CALIFORNIA WIND ENERGY ASSOCIATION Panelists: Rosa Hilmarsdottir Cucicea, VP, Clean Energy Division Manager, RIVER CITY BANK Representative, FITCH RATINGS Harry Singh, Vice President, GOLDMAN SACHS Fred Zelaya, Director Structured Finance, MUFG UNION BANK, N.A. Ardi Arian, General Manager, SUNTECH POWER DEVELOPMENT AMERICA
