Financial Risk Analysis of Infrastructure Debt: The Case of Water and Power Investments

Synopsis

This book addresses the question of how to measure financial risk associated with investments in the following infrastructure: electricity generation, power transmission, and water storage, treatment, and distribution systems. Integrating material from business, engineering, economics, demography, probability theory, computer simulation, and policy studies, Jones explores the application of risk analysis to construction projects, rate-setting and price effects, and customer characteristics. The clearly written study is organized around risk factors affecting costs and revenues, while the presentation supports a practical analysis with spreadsheet and simulation examples.
