Photovoltaic (PV) financial models are used by project developers, banks and asset managers to evaluate the profitability of a PV project. This work presents an overview of current practices for financial modelling of PV investments and reviews them in view of technical and financial risks during the different phases of a PV project. This webinar presents the results from the International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Task 13 Subtask 1. The webinar focuses on establishing common practices for translating the technical parameters of performance and reliability into financial terms. The presentations give a comprehensive set of practical guidelines and recommendations for mitigating and hedging financial risks in a PV investment.
