Lesson 4 Summary and Final Tasks


Summary and Final Tasks


Accounting is the language that is used to describe business transactions and the financial viability of companies and projects. This same language is used to determine the viability of any type of for-profit energy company and project, whether based on conventional or alternative energy resources or technologies. We learned about the three fundamental accounting statements – the Balance Sheet, the P&L, and the Cash Flow. The latter two of these make up the “pro forma” evaluation of a potential energy project.
