Developing appropriate tools for de-risking investment in the emerging solar sector is needed to create momentum for large scale deployment of solar power to meet 100 GW target by 2022. However, multifaceted barriers and associated risks confront full scale transition to solar power. Thus the project sets out to identify risks and build multi-actor partnerships for research and dialogue at national level to enable easy flow of investment.
The project sets out to build multi-stakeholder parternships of above actors at national level that coordinates with actors in few African countries and in Germany. The partnerships could assist in realising expectations of stakeholders and to mobilize finance from Germany.
The project is led by GermanWatch while The Energy Research Institute (TERI) is the lead partner in India. CAN South Asia acts as a civil society partner for the project and will provide network support to strengthen multistakeholder partnerships to improve investment in solar energy sector in India.
