1000 pages for a legal document such as off-take agreement is really idiosyncratic, if it true.

Referring to financing mechanisms across the different phases of the project cycle, I find it difficult to understand how private financing is appropriate in the preparation phase. The main aim of private investments are returns and the private investor doesn’t can’t get a return on investment in the preparation phase. My view is that preparation of bankable projects need to come from public funds that would catalyze private investment in the construction and hopefully operation phase. Public financing can be used to also derisk the investment environment.
