Program Description

Rising energy prices, concern over greenhouse gases, and greater dependence on foreign fossil fuels has spurred the development of alternative energy sources. The valuation of these renewable interests must be considered for estate and transfer tax reporting. Public interest in these assets has resulted in a market for undivided interests as with mineral interests. What appraisal and valuation guidelines should be considered. In particular, what are the determinants of value in wind and other renewable assets. What impact does the termination of the Production Tax Credit have on future cash flow of projects? What market and development issues must be considered for a defensible valuation?
