Masterclass A: Structuring financial deals for hydrogen

Hydrogen is a new energy source, so old energy financing frameworks won’t necessarily work. The sector needs to find new ways of structuring these deals, ensuring that the principles of sound financial management are applied without harsh restrictions that will strangle the deals before they happen. Participants will come away with a strong understanding of how to shape these agreements in prudent ways that allow for the flexibility the emerging hydrogen market requires.
