The course though very interesting and the modeling very impressive. I felt that the model required more explanation especially with the technical aspects. I felt that the course required an introductory course to explain the concepts before the modeling started
Perfect match for me. I am developing my capabilities in renewable energy sector and this course fits right in. High quality.
This is an interesting but quite challenging course. Definitely requires some knowledge of financial analysis etc
It was run at a good pace. Some of the excel was difficult, but most was well explained so watching a unit twice helped.
This course is a gem. I would highly recommend this course to anyone working/interested in the renewable energy sector (analyst roles). It is an excellent course to go into the details of solar/wind projects from a financial model point of view. Some of the highlights: 1. Rod gives you really advanced and valuable key modeling inputs that you cannot find in other modeling courses such as different stakeholder scenarios and different debt sizing cases within the same model. You can truly see how he has squeezed years of experience in this course. 2. He is actively answering any question you might have regarding the course and renewable energy related topics. You can simply check that all questions have been answered in the Q&A section. Lastly, I would recommend you to do this course at the same time you do Rod's Project Finance course offered at Udemy too. You can start from scratch building your own advanced PF + buyout model with a really experienced lecturer!
most of the course is explanation in the excel file, i hoped if it is has more detail explanation then at the end of the course be explanation in excel
Explanation about fundamentals of financial modelling and excel techniques is required in a bit more detail and simple manner
It is a very good match! Nevertheless the course requires a significant knowledge on both accounting anf financing. But it is very good!
Starts off simple and goes into a very decent level of sophistication. (Bodmer-level of sophistication, for those to whom that reference makes sense.) You can always slow down if things go over your head and look at the model, handily expanded upon with each lesson.
I felt like I learned a lot. Really good examples, to get into the detail, and understand some of the key issues with this topic.
This is quite nice training, but some financial concepts are difficult to understand in one go, if possible please break down further.
1) This should be based out of a single template excel 2) More explanation on some topics (e.g. debt sizing)
High expert knowledge and sound good but too technical for for those seeking to know simple economic of energy system. like rate of return on investment , Net present worth etc. Overall it was high expertly and advance financial analysis.
Excellent course! A lot of insight, for beginners or for experienced professionals. I learned a lot of new tricks and found the exercises very useful as well. Looking forward to the other courses by the trainer!
It is a great training course that provides insight on the renewable energy industry and nice details throughout the model sample. I learned a lot! It will be nice if we can get the sample model in excel format.
