Renewable Energy & Environmental Technologies

Westar Trade Resources has a tremendous amount of experience in obtaining funding from a variety of government enhanced funding programs, and we have assisted companies with obtaining over $1 billoion in grants and government loan guarantees. Westar’s projects range in size with smaller projects starting at $1 million and going up to $500 million for larger, more complex projects.

We have developed close working relationships with governmental contacts including USDA, DOE, SBA, DOD, OPIC, Ex-Im Bank, regional development banks and international export credit agencies to gain key insights on project eligibility and requirements for financial packaging, credible and detailed due diligence reports and independent feasibility studies.

Our independent feasibility studies are also written to the USDA guidelines, and the clients that we have conducted these studies for have experienced continued success for the USDA 9003 Biorefinery Loan Guarantee Program, the USDA 9007 REAP Grant and Loan Guarantee Program, the USDA Business & Industry Loan Guarantee Program, and the USDA Value-Added Grant Program.

Attracting capital and securing long-term financing for international projects, especially in the renewable energy sector, is increasingly challenging worldwide. International renewable energy projects also have a unique set of challenges and risks including:

  • Country Risk
  • Government Regulation Risk
  • Competition Risk
  • Joint Venture Technology Partnership Risk
  • Regional Product Strategy Risk
  • Feedstock Supply Risk
  • Biofuels Technology Readiness Risk
  • Biofuels Offtake Contract Risk
  • Distribution Risk
  • Biofuels Financing Strategy Risk

Many of these issues can be addressed with an independent feasibility study or due diligence evaluation of a project. A well-researched and well-written feasibility study is extremely important for project finance, especially when it comes to structuring and financing large scale projects in emerging international markets.
