Given the accelerating growth of the solar market and the uncertainty regarding tax grant policies, the current financing landscape of solar-lease agreements and PPA’s may not be adequate. A new report by Standard & Poor’s1, points to securitization as a viable financing tool that may accommodate the projected increase in the rate of installations. Securitization offers diversification and greater access to cheaper capital, but comes with risks outlined by the authors of the report as coming from a lack of data regarding offtaker default rates, utility rates and recovery prices among other risks. In this meeting, we look at the issue of securitization of solar contracts from the developer, ratings agency and financier perspectives. 

 

  • What have been the recent movements among clean technology players and banks towards securitization?
  • What technologies look most ripe for securitization and why?
  • What types of contracts have been most commonly securitized?
  • What effect will renewables securitization have on clean technology market maturity?
  • What is the projected amount of liquidity that securitization can bring about?
