It was a sincere privilege to teach the Financial Modelling component for Utility Tariff Setting at the Power Futures Lab at the University of Cape Town (UCT).GSB. The Financial Modelling for Utility Tariff Setting course, gives managers, senior professionals and advisors in utilities, regulatory authorities and government the skills needed to set tariffs in a regulated context. We taught over 140 participants over two weeks, the enthusiasm and engagement during the long hours of screen time was greatly appreciated We look forward to the course being in-person next year. If you have a need for analyzing economic and financial sustainability, please reach out to us. We can support you with tariff setting, regulatory issues, financing of utilities, and financial modeling.
We have been busy developing, filming and producing new online material, and we are really excited about the new courses we are going to launch in early 2022. Both courses below are currently in production.
We have listened to your requests to add a battery storage course! It clearly makes sense, we all expect more batteries being added to the grid in the coming years. The first version of the course will cover:
What problems are batteries attempting to solve?
Grid operations, focused on dispatch, duck curves, supply shifting, and ancillary services
Types of energy storage systems and battery terminology that confuses many people
Battery economics, including revenue and cost structures
Simple one-page model demonstrating common operational calculations
This course will not cover project finance concepts. It is expected you are already familiar with these from our Renewable Energy Project Finance Modeling course.
This course is an extension to the renewables and infrastructure course. Whilst the online course is not yet available the VBA course is now available as an in-person course to an organization.
The courses in our existing portfolio have been developed to emphasize why things work the way they do and how the multi-faceted pieces fit together in the broader context of a transaction.
All our courses for 2021 are now full. The courses have proved to be so popular we added two additional classes in October/November. These courses are currently in progress and are both filled to capacity.
We look forward to seeing you enroll in our 2022 courses.
