      reduce costs, and allow the industry to b            ii
    • IFC investments will help scale-up the supply chain to drive down
      the cost of solar PV energy to reach “grid-parity”
    • Investing across the solar supply chain in:
         Early t g      gi g technologies
       – E l stage, emerging t h l gi
       – Solar power generation
       – Manufacturing capacity in markets where there is suitable
         regulatory support or where solar is increasingly cost-
    • Access concessional finance to enable power projects in markets
      where solar generation is not yet inherently competitive or where
      th    is insufficient regulatory support

Issues in financing Solar Power Projects
 Solar power tends to be more expensive than conventional sources of
     Carbon finance generally insufficient to bridge the cost differential
     Feed-in-tariffs/financial subsidies needed to reach grid parity
 Absence of a well-defined tariff/regulatory framework in many countries
 Ab       f     ll d fi d     iff/    l      f       ki              i
     Majority of developing countries have zero, insufficient or new and unproven
     levels of financial support
     Concessional financing helpful to ensure economic viability
 Recent shortage of long-term financing
 Lack of sponsors with emerging market experience
 Different technologies tend to have unique strengths/risks
     Solar technology is still evolving rapidly and such developments are affecting
                                                    (i.e. c Si  vs
     project configuration and technology choice (i e c-Si PV vs. TF PV)
     Recent improvements in technology have drastically reduced levelized
     production costs affecting the relative economics of older projects
     Significant technological advances & cost reductions could lead t rapid
