EKON experts were retained by an American Investment fund to provide independent expert advise and carry out a damage impact assessment on a portfolio of mini hydro assets in Spain. The analysis looked to determine the impact of a number of retroactive regulatory changes implemented by the Spanish Government since the acquisition date, the analysis looked to determine the impact of these changes on the discounted cash flows of the portfolio of each of the regulatory changes in isolation and combined. In order to project the expected revenue (both pool price and regulatory income) EKON experts used our Rinv calculator to determine the regulated income under different projected pool price scenarios. Our expert report concluded that indeed there had been a serious economic impact on our client’s investment. Steven Taylor is acting as expert witness for this case. SPAIN Invesment Fund
