“Bright Ideas” describes major trends in solar financing

DNV GL: New financing structures and understanding risk are crucial to continuing the growth of solar

2014-10-21

On October 21, 2104, DNV GL (Las Vegas, Nevada), a provider of classification and technical assurance along with software and independent expert advisory services to the maritime, oil and gas, and energy industries, released the new position paper “Bright Ideas: Global Trends in Solar Finance”. In “Bright Ideas”, DNV GL draws upon the front-line experience of its solar experts working on five continents across all major solar market segments. The paper describes major trends in solar financing, defining what is needed to ensure technical risks are properly assessed, and looking beyond the current horizon to reflect upon what the future holds for solar energy finance: securitisation, new sources of debt and equity, new routes to market and crowdfunding. Real-world reference cases are also highlighted. Read more...
