Private Finance: Confronting the Unfamiliar

Date: November 28th
Time: 12:00-6:00pm
Location: JW Marriott Austin | 110 E 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701

Workshop Overview
With the White House offering few alternatives, private finance may soon become a reality for many municipalities across North America. It is an unfamiliar world for most. This workshop will provide an introduction to the ways in which private investors can work with public water utilities to address infrastructure needs. Co-organized by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies and Global Water Intelligence, this workshop aims to provide answers to the following questions:

  • What are the different P3 models available and how do they work?
  • How do the numbers add up from a rate payer’s perspective?
  • What are the ingredients of a successful P3 from a utility’s perspective?
  • What is the best PR strategy for addressing public concern about P3s?
  • How will a P3 impact other utility operations?
  • Is it worth all the trouble?

Led by experienced P3 professionals, the workshop features presentations from utility leaders involved in successful P3 water projects such as Bayonne (NJ), San Antonio (TX) and Carlsbad (CA), as well as input from the leading private investment funds involved in the water sector.

Ahead of the American Water Summit 2017, this pre-conference event is aimed at utility executives needing to understand the P3 proposition for water infrastructure finance in a discrete, off-the-record and commitment-free environment.

Price:

$200 for NACWA and partner agencies
$0 Global Water Leaders Group program at the American Water Summit 2017
$695 Non-utility participants
