Case Study Conclusions

Four Important Enabling Elements:

  1. The subsidized power purchase agreement (PPA) and the payment security scheme – which closed the viability gap and reduced the risks.
  2. The longer maturity rate of international debt improved the overall project economics.
  3. Comprehensive warranties by the technology provider reduced potential technology risks for both the developer and the investors.
  4. An experienced and financial strong private developer was able to mobilise the overall project and to also take on a project with low equity returns to become a first-mover in this new market.
