Closing the Deal

March 4, 2020 | 1:30 PM EST

At the American Biogas Council we understand how daunting it can feel to start a new biogas project. In this new ABC webinar, our panelists will teach you how to attract investors, lenders, and project developers, and how to quantify biogas project risks and mitigate them. Our webinar panelists have been in your shoes and are ready to help you close the deal and get your project started.
The potential for biogas production in the United States is huge. If realized, new biogas systems would catalyze an estimated $40 billion in capital deployment for construction activity which would result in approximately 335,000 short-term construction jobs and 23,000 permanent jobs to build and run the digesters. With all that potential comes great opportunity, so in this webinar panelists lay out everything you need to know to get your biogas projects up and running, from quantifying biogas project risks and mitigating them, to attracting lenders and securing financing, and every handshake in between. Join us on March 4 to learn everything you need to close the deal.
