CLIMATE FINANCE CASE STUDIES - Regional Training on Climate Finance in Southeast Asian countries
Case Study Conclusions
Four Important Enabling Elements:
- The subsidized power purchase agreement (PPA) and the payment security scheme – which closed the viability gap and reduced the risks.
- The longer maturity rate of international debt improved the overall project economics.
- Comprehensive warranties by the technology provider reduced potential technology risks for both the developer and the investors.
- 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.
