PAST Webinar: The Evolving Landscape of solar PV in Emerging Markets

Tuesday 10 October 2017 - 17:00 CEST

The clean energy revolution is unfolding at an incredible pace, much faster than most people realize. This is particularly apparent in emerging markets, where we see a wide range of evolving business models and financial structures driving prices for solar PV applications down to the point where it is already the cheapest technology available. Moreover, there is an abundance of both private and public sector capital available for solar PV projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Financial structuring of deals, however, remains to be a critical challenge in having the readily available capital flowing into bankable projects.
