Identifying profitable new business models and innovative financing schemes for PV systems
Building on the past success of the PV LEGAL and PV GRID projects, eclareon was once again a partner in a European project consortium, led by the German Solar Association. The PV FINANCING project was launched in January 2015. Like the previous projects, PV Financing aimed at successfully removing barriers and identifying new business models for the photovoltaic market development. More specifically, the goal of PV FINANCING was to identify the most profitable business models and financing schemes for PV systems in all the countries covered.
The project covered six EU Member States (Germany, Austria, France, UK, Italy, Spain) and Turkey. Private investors and decision makers at banks and insurance companies were shown the new business models, thereby enabling them to include these results in their decision-making processes in regards to new investments. The project also assessed what kind of political frameworks new financing models need for application and which barriers hamper further growth of solar PV the most.
The business consulting unit contributeed to this project by providing cash flow modelling tools for the partner countries and by supporting the project partners in authoring implementation guidelines for selected PV business models and innovative financing schemes.
