Global installed capacity of photovoltaic (PV) systems in 2018 increased by 26% relative to the previous year to a level of 509.3 TW. For the eighth year in succession, PV outpaced all other types of renewable energy technologies in terms of annual investment volumes, making it the most dominant and important renewable energy technology. Compared to wind energy, PV already is the cheapest energy generation source in most southern and high solar irradiation countries.

Emerging markets have to supply the increasing power consumption of their population and economy. This requires huge investments. Despite many public programmes and initiatives, it is the private sector with debt and equity providers that needs to step forward and develop and realize renewable energy projects.


This workshop is designed for interested practitioners that want to better understand:

  • Relevant bankability aspects of the PV technology and the financing approach for photovoltaic projects,
  • Main risks associated with PV projects and common mitigation techniques from the finance provider’s perspective.
  • Step-by-step cash flow planning process for a sample project and its financial assessment using project finance ratios

Our experienced professional in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Finance, Mr. Alexander Boensch will be your coach.
