|| The development objective is to support the Borrower (the Moroccan Solar Agency MASEN) in the development of the 500 Megawatt Ouarzazate solar power plant by financing the first phase (160 Megawatt gross) through a public private partnership (PPP), to increase power generation from solar power and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and local environment impact.
The document includes an example of economic and financial analysis:
- The economic analysis deals with cost effectiveness, cost/benefit analysis and Economic Internal Rate Return (EIRR) calculations;
- The financial analysis at solar project company(SPC) level is focused on the Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) for the plant. At MASEN’s level, the analysis is focused on the company’s cash generation, i.e. on the level of subsidy/additional financing required to preserve MASEN’s financial viability.
