By Kathleen Zipp Solar Power World:
Solar radiation is arguably the most plentiful source of available energy on Earth. Solar electric power generation is clean, renewable, flexible, scalable and can deploy relatively quickly to meet increasing demand.
However, solar energy is not without challenges. To ensure the availability of capital for solar electric power generation, developers need to mitigate risks.
In this paper, we will examine the first five stages of solar development to see how the decisions made during the development process affect a project’s bankability. We will then take a look at a crucial sixth stage: customer enablement. This stage allows energy-conscious consumers to choose solar electric power and other renewable sources of electricity over more traditional sources… Read more
