It is important for the public and private sectors to establish effective risk allocation strategies for PPP projects in order to achieve a more efficient process of contract negotiation. This paper has studied the equitable allocation of risks in China’s PPP power projects based on a comparative analysis of preferred and actual risk allocations. According to the analysis, three risks, namely, “Change in law”, “Competition (Exclusive right)” and “Organization and coordination risk” had different allocations. Reasons behind the differences were analyzed and more appropriate allocations for the three risks were also discussed. The preferred and actual allocation for other risks would also be reported in this paper.
