• BSW-Solar, building on the success of PV Legal and PV GRID,
    lead the PV FINANCING project from 2015 until June 2017.

    PV FINANCING aimed to successfully remove the barriers and identify
    new avenues for the photovoltaic market development.

    More specifically, the goal of PV FINANCING was to identify, in all the covered
    countries, the most profitable business models and financing schemes for
    PV Systems.

About PV-Financing



The project covered six European countries (incl. Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Austria, Spain) and Turkey. Private investors and decision makers in banks and insurance companies were introduced to the new business models, allowing them to include these results in their decision process as regards new investments. The project also assessed what political framework for the application of new financing models is required and which barriers slow the PV expansion.
