The paper aims to assess the drivers of credit risk in project finance. Credit risk is one of the risks to which the project lenders are exposed. In particular, the proposed paper aims to analyse some critical issues related to credit risk assessment by lending banks. It is particularly complex to evaluate credit risk because of large infrastructure projects in energy industry, large sums of capital required to finance energy projects, new technologies involved, complex project agreements, legal and contractual structures, state-level regulation and tax treatment.
