Globalization has given room for growth, development, fair trade and economic development. Renewable energy is at the forefront due to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. What role will distributed solar generation play in evening the distribution of generation through Sub-Saharan Africa? The panel will focus on trying to evaluate the bankability of main-grid and microgrid solar PV and what this means for the future of financing structures. Panelists will tell their opinions on how current initiatives such as the USTDA’s Power Africa and the US’s Africa Clean Energy Finance Initiative are drawing investors eager to turn a profit, how main-grid versus Micro-grid funding structures may differ and possible future trajectories of private investors and funding banks such as Credit Suisse.
