44475-012: CAPACITY BUILDING FOR COMMERCIAL BANK LENDING FOR SOLAR ENERGY PROJECTS

Project Data Sheet (PDS): Overview


Description

The purpose of the TA is to promote the deployment of solar power generation projects through private sector investments. Private developers will seek limited recourse project financing from commercial banks, which are not familiar with solar technologies, their expected performance, issues to be assessed during lenders' due diligence and appropriate loan terms and conditions for solar projects. The TA will increase the confidence of the commercial banks to lend to these projects by providing technical expertise for due diligence and solar technology assessments. It is expected that some of the beneficiaries under this TA will be participating commercial banks under ADB's Solar Power Generation Guarantee Facility (which is being processed in parallel).
