Abstract
This Report is intended to provide an overview of the current status, anticipated future development efforts and realistic financial prospects for a large-scale geothermal power production and submarine electrical transmission cable project (the "Project") being considered for the State of Hawaii. This Report will present such information in a practical manner so that it can be of the greatest usefulness to private industry and financial institutions who may consider participating in certain aspects of Project implementation. The approach taken throughout this overview economic and financial feasibility assessment is to focus upon the major technological, construction, operations, economic and regulatory risks (whether actual or perceived) inherent in the Project. These risks will have to be addressed by contractual arrangements among the participants in the Project, in order to successfully attract the $1.5 billion or more of private capital needed to build the Project. In specific terms, the perspective of this Report is that of a financial advisor and investment banker undertaking the contractual negotiations and international financing source negotiations required for a large-scale, technically-complex energy production facility.
