Live Tenders:
Industrial Development Corporation - Zambia

 

Scaling Solar brings together a suite of World Bank Group services under a single engagement aimed at creating viable markets for solar power in each client country. The “one stop shop” program aims to make privately funded grid-connected solar projects operational within two years and at competitive tariffs. When implemented across multiple countries, the program will create a new regional market for solar investment.

 

We offer a package that includes:

  • Advice to assess the right size and location for solar PV power plants in a country's grid.
  • Simple and rapid tendering to ensure strong participation and competition from committed industry players.
  • Fully developed templates of bankable project documents that can eliminate negotiation and speed up financing.
  • Competitive financing and insurance attached to the tender, delivering competitive bidding and ensuring rapid financial close.
  • Risk management and credit enhancement products to lower financing costs and deliver power at lower tariffs.
