Solar Shark Tank

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 2018 FMO Access Power Solar 'Shark Tank' Competition following the competition's successful first installment in 2016 at the 'Making Solar Bankable' conference. The initiative is aimed at helping local solar power developers that require development support to make their innovative solar projects more impactful.

In order to be considered for the grant, the proposed projects must be:

  • Located in Asia, Africa or Latin America
  • Be based on solar PV technology
  • Meet the capacity criterion of 10MW or more
  • Be at an advanced stage of development (preliminary feasibility studies should have been completed)
  • Eligible projects should have an innovative or impactful angle to the project that can be developed with support of the grant.

The winner will receive a $100,000 grant towards the development costs of their project from FMO and Access Power. In addition to that, Access Power will pre-qualify the winning proposal of the Solar Shark Tank competition for the 2018 edition of the Access Co-Development Facility (ACF) competition, subject to meeting ACF qualification requirements. Access Power will provide the ACF winner with technical support, financial structuring and development process management.
