James Wright, managing director and head of U.S. project finance and infrastructure with CIBC Capital Markets, joins us to discuss batteries and energy storage. We get into why it has taken so long for battery storage deals to come to the project finance lending market, how lenders are thinking about the unique risk factors that come with a new technology, why these battery projects are more bankable now, what is holding back some of the non-lithium technologies from making it to bankers’ desks, the battery issue that keeps James awake at night and more.
