India: Vadodara Solar

PPP Brief

The state of Gujarat has been at the forefront of the solar energy revolution in India, successfully bringing on line over 800 Mega Watts (MW) of ground based solar PV plants under a state program. In 2010, the government of Gujarat sought IFC’s assistance to
develop an innovative 5 MW rooftop solar public-private partnership (PPP) project in the state capital of Gandhinagar outfitting government buildings with solar panels. The success of this project has helped prove the potential for rooftop solar in India. To help attain
its green energy vision, the government looked to replicate the project, but this time with the participation of its citizens, and sought IFC’s assistance to structure a new project in the city of Vadodara with private citizens adopting the rooftop solar concept. The project agreement was signed in June 2014.
