Shining Prospects for Distributed Solar

Take a look at the investment and policy landscape for solar distribution, especially in emerging markets.


Small scale solar has more than doubled since 2012, and distributed generation is profoundly transforming the energy sector. Shari and Marcene are joined by two solar experts – Guido Agostinelli, a Senior Industry Specialist at IFC, and Mike Silvestrini, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Energea, a renewable energy project investor that is focused on emerging and frontier markets.



Views expressed here are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of IFC.
