Document Summary:

PPIAF support was instrumental in transforming the enabling environment in the State of Odisha to scale-up renewable energy and catalyze the development of a 1,000 megawatt (MW) solar park through a public-private partnership. The technical assistance support was critical in removing key barriers for private-sector participation while helping build the local institutional capacity. As a result, the State of Odisha was recently included in the National Solar Park Development initiative’s Shared Infrastructure for Solar Parks Project. This has enabled the state to qualify for concessional financing through bilateral/multilateral development banks as well as for additional funding through the Government of India.
