Welcome to Episode 30 of SunCast (woohoo, Thirty!).

Today, we will be spending time with Patrick Doyle of MGM Innova Capital.  You should have a listen if you're interested in:

  • Structured finance for the DG Solar market in Latin America
  • Lessons learned financing private sector deals at the IDB
  • And how to compete as a developer for the limited capital available to the DG market

 Patrick knows what he's talking about when it comes to financing private sector renewables, having been among the first to do so for the Latam DG sector during his tenure at the Inter-american Development Bank (IDB).  Today, he continues doling out financing, but this time for more than just renewables, and on behalf of private investors.

Solarplaza organizes some of the finest conferences and trade missions on solar energy in emerging markets that I've attended. And June 15th & 16th, I'll be joining them and other key leaders in the Latin America Market at the Unlocking Solar Capital LATAM event in Miami.
