overview

The primary goal of the workshop will be to identify, quantify and discuss mitigation of those risks created by firms (pure-play or diversified businesses) engage in producing Alternative Energy.

The hope is to encourage increased development of this Alternative Energy business model by making transparent the drivers that might be barriers to entry and facilitate expansion of this business area.

We will show that the risk / reward analyses that guide all businesses also apply to Alternative Energy production. And the practices from other business areas (finance, structured products) can be applied to develop this new space. 

AIM OF WORKSHOP

The workshop is aimed at influencing the thinking of decision makers (finance, management, technology) engaged in or looking to engage in Alternative Energy businesses. The systematic deconstruction approach will show how many of the risks are concepts businesses are already familiar with and deal with in other markets. As a result of this familiarization with existing business, we hope to encourage others to capitalize on the many money making opportunities.

KEY THEMES

The break down will be between –
  • Familiar Risks that exist in non-Alternative Energy businesses also (e.g. weather, natural resource, political, currency, financial, contractual etc.)
  • New Risks that are unique to Alternative Energy businesses (e.g. technology, dependencies on other businesses and markets, market structures that are ill defined, small scale or non-homogeneous, legal, social etc.)
For the risk mitigation discussion, we shall focus on selected major categories (using examples) and how these can be –
  • Hedged using current tools (leverage products and practices from other disciplines e.g. consumer credit risk, interest rate risk, commodity risk etc.)
  • Not Hedged as no tools exist
  • Shared with other stakeholders
  • Borne outright because they eliminate other bigger risks

ABOUT YOUR WORKSHOP LEADER

Amir Shuja is currently the global head of valuation, control at the JP Morgan Chase Chief Investment Office. We are always engaged in transfering knowledge, experienced and practices between businesses. The Energy space is seen as an area that can learn from the risk management and valuation concepts of the structured products market and this workshop is structured for that purpose.

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
