What is solar bankability?

Solar bankability solutions include feasibility and bankability studies for PV power plants to evaluate and analyse the potential of a proposed PV project to give assurance to decision makers. By assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a proposed investment, opportunities and threats as presented by the environment, and the resources required to carry through, the prospects for success will be made clearer.

Why is solar bankability Important?

Evaluating the bankability of a PV power plant project helps to determine the economic, technical and operational requirements for long-term success of your financial investments.

TÜV SÜD assures that decisions made in the early stages meet various requirements and stakeholder expectations.

Our assessment of solar PV potential based on meteorological data, site and integration evaluation as well as financial and economic analysis will give full assurance to decision makers. We support feasibility studies with additional solutions such as bankability studies, environmental due diligence, contract review and grid integration services.

Our solar bankability solutions include:

  • Technical assessment

    TÜV SÜD provides verification of a location’s suitability, identification of critical site-specific aspects and simulation of energy yield based on site location and technology. Our technical experts assist you with measures to optimise the PV plant design, including PVSYST simulation software used together with climatic data resources such as METEONORM, SolarGIS, PVGIS classic and PVGIS-SAF.

  • Financial assessment

    We calculate the annual power production of a PV plant based on the project design and local climatic conditions.

  • Economic assessment

    Our experts provide an assessment of the economic feasibility of the project. This includes a country-specific analysis of the financial context and regulations.
