In this episode we dig deeper into a topic we brushed with Capital Dynamics CEO Martin Hahn before: Clean Energy. Private Investments in renewable energy assets, like wind parks and solar farms all across Europe. We dig into lifecycle of such assets, value drivers, and buyers and sellers in the market. We go deep into the mechanics of the power market and what it means for asset pricing. Barney tells us how he experienced the complete change in the market when subsidies suddenly stopped and much more.
