One of the biggest hurdles to waste conversion project development is securing the financing. A session during the Renewable Energy from Waste (REW) Conference, Oct. 2-4, in Fort Myers, Florida, has been developed to help attendees find funding sources and strategies that work.

A group of panelists who have experience in financing waste conversion projects through various means will share their experiences. Government grants, bonds and other funding sources can be made available if developers know where to look. The 90-minute panel, titled Financing Strategies for Waste Conversion includes speakers with a wealth of varied experience with financing biogas and other projects where conversion technologies are being deployed.

Panelists include:

Mark Reidy, Kilpatrick Townsend, Washington, who has more than 35 years of practice U.S. and international project development and finance and private placement representation of renewable and conventional energy, clean technology, environmental and infrastructure clients;

Joe Regneri, chief commercial officer for New Phase Energy, Denver, who has more than 30 years of experience providing finance, business development, legal and regulatory guidance to the traditional and renewable energy sectors; and

Jeffrey Weisz, senior managing director, New Caanan Capital Management (NCCM), Naples, Florida. NCCM through the Green Energy Opportunity Fund, LP. (GEOF) is an investment company specializing in underwriting and structuring projects with a combination of equity and debt, that help midsize and large developers compete for renewable energy projects.

The session will be moderated by Kristin Smith-Ely, Editor of Waste Today.
