BSW-Solar, building on the success of PV LEGAL and PV GRID, has taken the lead for the PV FINANCING project in 2015. Like the previous projects, PV Financing aims to successfully remove barriers and identify new avenues for the photovoltaic market development. More specifically, the goal of PV FINANCING is to identify, in all the covered countries, the most profitable business models and financing schemes for PV Systems.
The project covers six European countries (Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Austria, Spain) and Turkey. Private investors and decision makers in banks and insurance companies will be introduced to the new business models, allowing them to include these results in their decision process as regards new investments. The project will also assess what political framework for the application of new financing models is required and which barriers slow the PV expansion.
The project started in January 2015 and runs over 30 months and is fully supported under Horizon 2020 from the EU. The project partners, including Housing Europe, are listed here.
