IFC publishes revised Utility-Scale Project Developer's Guide

The IFC, the private sector arm of the World Bank, has published a revised Project Developer's Guide on Utility-Scale Solar PV Power Plants.

The guide "aims to enhance the understanding of how to successfully develop, finance, construct, and operate utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants" and covers both technical and commercial aspects of solar project development.

The revised guide includes annexes with a review of common construction mistakes, typical heads of terms for EPC and O&M contracts and an annex on technical aspects of rooftop solar construction. The guide is an excellent resource and Iwana's encourages its partners in emerging markets to make use of it as a reference.  

The guide, contributed to by Iwana's Project Portfolio Director, Lauren Inouye, is available on the IFC's website here.
