A dam is a great visual for the power grid. Water is one of those never-ending renewable energy sources that we often forget about. If you want to teach kids about the electricity grid, visit a dam. It’s a huge visual representation of a battery that illustrates the energy the world needs. The lake formed by the dam is, essentially, the battery storage. When energy demand is high, water tumbles through the dam into the small river below. When demand is low, water is pumped back up into the dam, creating more energy reserves. Take a tour if you can.
4:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Risk and Valuation in Project Finance Case Study
Elta Kolo from Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables will present a short case study on risk and valuation.
