Our global solar experience is unparalleled; we have worked for lenders and sponsors on a number of solar projects worldwide and are therefore familiar with the respective needs when considering the development and financing of a solar project.
The emergence of new technologies within the solar sector, falling capital costs and improved domestic incentivization schemes demand the attention of investors and developers and confirms that solar energy is an essential component of the future energy mix.
Our solar team combines the in-depth level of knowledge gained by closing a vast number of solar photovoltaic (PV), concentrating solar power (CSP) projects and C&I solar projects across the globe as well as our power team who are at the forefront of energy storage.
