PPAs unlocked the power of renewables leading to the sectors incredible rise over the past decade. These long term agreements, primarily selling the power to utilities, provided the foundation for a whole slate of new developers to create wind and solar farms across Europe and US. Everything worked well in a decade of low prices and low volatility. Then came 2021 and these long term PPAs created an existential risk to certain participants. Utilities have faced huge margin calls to manage their exposure to hedged PPAs warehoused on their balance sheets. What is the history of the PPA? What do the events of 2021 mean for the PPA going forwards? How will their structure and tenure change in response? And what will it do to the appetite of buyers and what will that mean for the renewable power industry? Our guest is Werner Trabesinger, Head of Quantitative Analytics at Pexapark, a software company enabling market players to sell, manage and buy renewable power. To find out more about HC and our talent advisory services in the energy & commodities sector visit www.hcgroup.global/hc-insider To connect with our host Paul Chapman, you can find him at www.linkedin.com/in/paulchapmanhc/

Mike Wilson: Will 2022 be a 2013 ‘Taper Tantrum' Redux?

As the year gets underway, we are seeing an aggressive rotation from growth to value stocks, triggered by Fed tapering. Will 2022 follow the patterns of the ‘taper tantrum' of 2013?----- Transcript -----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Mike Wilson, Chief Investment Officer and Chief U.S. Equity Strategist for Morgan Stanley. Along with my colleagues bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the latest trends in the financial marketplace. It's Monday, January 10th at 11:30 a.m. in New York. So let's get after it. 2022 is off to a blazing start with one of the most aggressive rotations from growth to value stocks we've ever seen. However, much of this rotation in the equity markets began back in November, with the Fed's more aggressive pivot on monetary policy. More specifically, the most expensive stocks in the market were down almost 30% in the last two months of 2021. Year to date, this cohort is down another 10%, leaving 40% of the Nasdaq stocks down more than 50% from their highs. Is the correction over in these expensive stocks yet? What has changed since the turning of the calendar is that longer term interest rates have moved up significantly. In fact, the move in 10-year real rates is one of the sharpest on record and looks similar to the original taper tantrum in 2013. However, as already mentioned, equity markets have been discounting this inevitable move in rates for months. Perhaps the real question is, why is the rates market suddenly waking up to the reality of higher inflation and the Fed's response to it - something it has telegraphed for months? We think it has to do with several tactical supports that are now being lifted. First, the Fed itself likely increased its liquidity provisions at year-end to support the typical constraints in the banking system. Meanwhile, many macro speculators and trading desks likely shut down their books in December, despite their fundamental view to be short bonds. This combination is now reversed and simply added fuel to a fire that had been burning for months under the surface. Based on the move in 2013, it looks like real rates still have further to run, potentially much further. Our rates strategists believe real rates are headed back to negative 50 basis points, which is another 25 basis points higher. From our perspective, real rates are unreasonably negative given the very strong GDP growth. Therefore, the Fed is correct to be trying to get them higher. It's also why tapering may not be tightening for the economy, even though it's the epitome of tightening financial conditions for markets. We have discussed this comparison to 2013 in prior research and made the following observations as it relates to equity markets. First, the taper tantrum in 2013 was the first of its kind and something for which the markets had not been prepared. Therefore, the move in real rates was much more severe and swift than what we would expect this time around. Second, valuations were much more attractive in 2013 based on both price/earnings multiples and the equity risk premiums, which adjust for absolute levels of rates, which are much lower today. Listeners may find it surprising to learn that the price/earnings multiple for the S&P 500 is actually higher today than when the Fed first announced its plan to taper asset purchases back in September. In other words, valuations have actually increased as the tapering has begun, at least for the broader S&P 500 index. This is also similar to what happened in 2013 and makes sense. After all, Fed tightening is a good sign for growth and evidence that its policy has been successful. However, this time the starting point on valuations is much higher as already noted. More importantly, growth is decelerating, whereas in 2013 it was accelerating. This applies to both economic and earnings growth. In this kind of an environment, the most expensive parts of the market remain the most vulnerable. This argues for value to outperform growth stocks. However, given the deceleration in growth, we favor the more defensive parts of value rather than the cyclicals like we did during the first quarter of 2021. This means Healthcare, Staples, REITs and Utilities. And some financials for a little offense to offset that portfolio. Thanks for listening.

ACEC released our latest monthly video economic update. Each month, ACEC Vice President of Private Market Resources Erin McLaughlin analyzes the latest public industry data and provides insights for the engineering and design industry, Here are the toplines from this month's update: The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) could add $132 billion and 82,000 jobs to the engineering and design sector, according to newly released estimates from the ACEC Research Institute and Rockport Analytics. Total design and construction is up 7.5% from January through October 2021 over the same time-frame last year, per U.S. Census Bureau. That category remains driven by private residential spending which is up more than 24% over last year. The economic growth outlook was downgraded in the latest National Association for Business Economics (NABE) survey. Respondents still expect economic growth and an increase in GDP, but point to inflation and vaccination challenges as obstacles.  Supply of goods is expected to normalize in the first half of 2022, a majority of NABE respondents say. As engineers design for additional building for IIJA projects, this is especially important for construction materials in our industry. Inflation won't come down to 2% until the second half of 2023, NABE survey respondents predict. Two percent is the Federal Reserve's stated goal, and respondents name supply chain bottle necks as the largest factor expected to keep inflation above that mark through the first half of 2022. Looking longer term, respondents said rising wages was the biggest factor over the next three years to keeping inflation above 2%. Wage pressure is one of the key challenges of the current engineering and design industry specifically. The video series is one of ACEC's resources for media and members, which also includes ACEC's popular Private Industry Briefs. The briefs provide analysis on five key markets: Commercial and Real Estate; Intermodal and Logistics; Energy and Utilities; Health Care and Science+Technology; and  K-12 & Higher Education. In March, the ACEC Private Market Resources team will hold a symposium on the commercial and residential real estate market in Scottsdale, Ariz.

There are technologies and softwares purpose-built to help you with nearly every aspect of your business.  From lead gen to estimating, Bookkeeping to HR, inventory management to time tracking.  No matter what the task is, there is some platform out there to help you with it.   And if there isn't yet there will be soon. Now, to be clear, I'm not saying randomly buying software subscriptions is going to fix everything. In fact, if you don't know how to navigate this world you can actually do more harm than good - and we'll talk about how to avoid that mistake in the episode.  But for evolved contractors planning to play this game for a while yet, the slow and methodical implementation of your tech stack is no longer optional. This is why we brought Piers Dormeyer to the show today.  Piers is the president of Construction and Utilities at EagleView.  If you've not heard of EagleView yet, let me give a great example of how tech is changing the game.  They're a geospatial software designed to help take estimating and project planning to another level.   Let me explain: Eagleview owns and operates a fleet of over 100 aircraft that are constantly flying over the towns and cities of North America, taking high-resolution aerial photos of buildings and properties.  These photos then get turned into hyper-precise diagrams accurate to a 10th of a foot.   Think about it… you could drive to the customer's house with a tape measure and a ladder, to spend an hour painstakingly measuring and estimating.  Or you could order an EagleView Report and have all that data (images, 3d models, measurements) in seconds.  No human error, no drive time, and way better information to build your pricing and project plan around.   That's probably why over 54,000 contractors ordered an  EV report last year. Anyway, Piers' background, before joining EagleView, which we'll let him explain in a second gives him a super unique perspective on technology's influence on the contracting industry. In this episode with Piers we unpack: How the contracting tech space has changed in the last 15 years The specific tech stack that Piers would recommend if he were starting a contracting company from scratch The difference in mindset between ‘early' adopters and ‘late' adopters and where each path leads The process you should be using to both select and integrate new software into your business How Covid has permanently altered the way contractors use technology Where Piers sees technology evolving in the contracting space in the next 10 years See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Failure is Only Temporary: How to Build a Really Successful Search Firm, with Susie Farrell, Ep #107

In this episode, you will hear how Susie Farrell built a really successful executive search firm under challenging circumstances.  This podcast is called The Resilient Recruiter for a reason -- the path to success is often paved with adversity.  This was certainly the case for Susie.  You will hear her share the story of why her first attempt to launch a recruitment business in Ireland failed - and how she applied what she learned from that experience to make it work the second time around. While this setback took a huge toll on her confidence, it also made her more determined than ever to succeed.  In this interview, she reveals some of her most effective marketing strategies for building her brand and growing a thriving business.  Susie is the Founder and Director of Addison, an executive recruitment and search firm based in Dublin, Ireland. She has 17 years of experience working for global and specialist recruitment brands in Ireland, Australia and the Middle East.  Susie has extensively delivered in Banking, Utilities, Telecoms, Retail, Consumer and Government sectors in the areas of Corporate Affairs, Marketing and Business Transformation. In this episode, you will relate to her experience and learnings. Enjoy! Episode Outline and Highlights [2:11] From marketing to recruitment: Susie shares her career milestones. [10:44] How Susie built a 7-figure change management practice from scratch and the biggest challenge she overcame in doing so. [13:59] Susie's brilliant strategy for building their brand and providing a platform for collaboration among her clients. [22:30] Returning to Ireland and setting up a new business. [28:40] Resilience and bouncing back from a devastating setback. [36:30] The secret to Addison's continued success. [40:31] Transitioning to retained model and the thought process behind that decision. [46:15] Hear about Susie's involvement with the CovidComms Awards. Great Ideas on Branding and Collaboration Susie shared her career milestones of being a recruitment specialist for 17 years. Her solid experience working with specialist and global brands equipped her well to succeed in setting up her own business. However, it was not a walk in the park as you will hear in our conversation. You will relate to the challenges and failures she experienced, and how those learnings ultimately helped her get where she is today. Susie credits the amazing team she worked with at her previous firm, Ampersand International as being pivotal to her successful career in recruitment.  One of the phenomenal ideas they came up with which she has replicated at Addison is the strategy of creating a forum or networking group within your niche, leading to collaboration, credibility, brand recognition and the development of key relationships.   Bouncing Back from a Devastating Business Experience Another takeaway from our conversation was Susie's resilience. She shared a very challenging stage in her career that really took a toll on her confidence and almost made her quit the agency life altogether. This happened when she returned to Ireland from Australia in 2015 for personal reasons. Her former employers asked her to open an office in Ireland, which seemed like a perfect opportunity. She launched the business and built a brilliant team, but in spite of working incredibly hard things didn't work out and they eventually had to close down after two years. As you can imagine, this was a devastating experience for Susie.  However, it prepared her for the challenge of setting up her own search firm.  Transitioning to the Retained Model I have always advocated for the retained search model - it is a win-win solution not only for recruiters but for clients as well. This is the case with Susie, she used to work in contract staffing but now doing permanent placements on a retained basis. So what was involved in making that transition?  Susie said, “I felt it was really risky running a business and being the only person in the business and having all this contingent work never really knowing what's going to come in next month… It just helps you forecast guaranteed revenue but it also guarantees that I am going to deliver the results. I absolutely have to do it, they paid for it.” Our Sponsors This podcast is proudly sponsored by i-intro®.  i-intro® is an end-to-end retained recruitment platform.

Boa parte do caminho para esse protagonismo, segundo o entrevistado, vem da abundância dos recursos naturais para as energias renováveis, aliado a um potencial praticamente inexplorado das eólicas offshore e da possibilidade de armazenamento do hidrogênio verde e da sua utilização na indústria e nos transportes.  No entanto, ainda temos um dever de casa para impulsionar esse potencial: regras previsíveis, estabilidade política e econômica e planejamento para a inserção de novas tecnologias.

In this episode we interview Sven Przywarra, Co-Founder of LiveEO, to discuss satellite remote sensing for Utility Vegetation Management. In recent years, the privatization of space and a reduction in the costs of accessing space has led to a proliferation in the number of earth observation satellites and the capabilities of these constellations. This raises the question of whether the T&D industry, and in particular the vegetation management community, can benefit from the technology. It's a hot topic - with several presentations exploring different aspects of the technology at the recent Trees and Utilities conference. In today's episode we cover a range of  topics including:An introduction to satellite remote sensingLegacy practices for inspecting vegetationSven's background & how he became involved in space technologyThe economics and technology trends reshaping spaceUVM use cases for earth observation satellites Satellite vs. LIDAR - are they competitive or complementary? Limitations of satellite datasetsWhat LiveEO has built for the UVM communityThe benefits of satellite imagery for vegetation managersWe hope that you find this episode of The UVM Podcast insightful.

How Far Are The Closest Utilities?

On today's show we're talking about the evolution of many cities. You will find pockets of development outside the urban core. These pockets are disconnected from each other in one very important respect. They don't have city supplied utilities. The cost of extending roads, water, sewer, electricity, internet, gas can be incredibly high. You might have two similar sized properties with the same entitlements. One has utilities at the property line. The second has the utilities a mile away. The cost of ripping up the streets and laying the new infrastructure can be prohibitive. I recently went through a costing exercise for one of our projects. The real cost of each foot of roadway is not the expensive part. Bringing the utilities to your property from far away is by far the most expensive. In the language of developers, we call these “offsite improvements”. Offsite improvements are among the most painful expenses for a developer. They ultimately are donated to the city. If the city is sympathetic, they will give you a credit against property taxes or a credit against development impact fees for any offsite improvements that you make. But in a lot of cases, you end up making those improvements at your own cost for the benefit of the city and other developers that come behind you. Just how much can those costs add up to? On today's show we're going to construction a budget per linear foot of roadway that you can use to estimate the cost of those offsite improvements.

Last week's partial lunar eclipse attracted millions of people to gaze at our nearest celestial neighbor. One of them, Daniel Sax, has designs on more than just staring at the moon. He intends to mine the crusty orb for water and oxygen, essentials that future planetary travelers will need to sustain them on lunar bases and fuel their voyages to Mars and beyond. Daniel is the co-founder of Toronto-based Canadian Space Mining Corporation, launched in August 2020. He aims to propel Canada to the forefront of the anticipated demand for space-based supply chains and utilities, and he's drawing a lot of interest from prospective investors and government officials. Host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart says what makes Daniel's story so compelling — and relevant to all entrepreneurs — is that he not only dreams big, he is crafting a pioneering business to turn his dreams into a reality.
