A useful guide on managing currency risk for CFOs and Investors in the off-grid energy sector – This side event by responsAbility in cooperation with Persistent Energy Partners provides finance managers and investors with practical tips on how to measure and manage currency risk in Distributed Energy Service Companies (DESCOs). We look at the FX risk from the companies’ perspective as well as from the perspective of equity and debt investors. We discuss FX risk hedging options and explain how to assess the costs versus benefits of such strategies. Participants can expect to leave the workshop with a general outline of an FX risk management framework and practical recommendations that addresses the specific exposure of DESCOs.

We would appreciate if you could give us an indication of your participation so that we can manage the space. To RSVP, please contact Vivian Kotun at and Dirk Muench at
