Since its early development in 2010, Floating Solar has gained more and more popularity. With more than 1 GWp of the project installed, it is now recognized, and well-established market created out of a response to the land scarcity for developing large scale projects. Such development has been attracted investments, but most of the projects are still based on recourse financing, due to the lack of standards, and the absence of clear guidelines and good practices. The presentation will focus on the impact of the bankability on the floating solar LCOE as well as the best practices, quality control and standards to implement in order to unlock such bankability. The presentation will propose to highlight the impact of bankability on the LCOE, as well as the temptative practices, quality, and standards to unlock such practices.
