“The current state of the economy—inflation, higher interest rates, supply chain issues—has started to impact fundraising in the solar sector. Even though the first half numbers held up, there was a pronounced slowdown from Q1 to Q2. Besides venture and private equity funding, all other areas experienced a decline in financing activity. But the value of solar is more evident than ever to markets that are dependent on energy imports. Clean energy installation goals are being ramped up around the world, and solar is a long-term beneficiary of this trend,” said Raj Prabhu, CEO of Mercom Capital Group.

In 1H 2022, venture capital (VC) funding activity rose 125% with $3.7 billion in 53 deals compared to the $1.6 billion raised in 26 deals in the first half of 2021.

Announced solar debt financing activity in 1H 2022 ($5 billion in 30 deals) was 39% lower compared to the first half of 2021 when $8.2 billion was raised in 32 deals.

In 1H 2022, there were a total of 148 project acquisitions for 38 GW of solar projects compared to 136 project acquisitions totaling 40 GW in 1H 2021.
