The main barrier in the application of innovative renewable energy technologies locates mainly in the investment scarcity as well as in the limited awareness of the operation and function of alternative modern financial mechanisms. The financial risk of the conventional financing schemes (i.e lending schemes, equity financing, etc.) combined with the increased technological and performance risk of advanced renewable technologies consist additional inhibit to the development of RES projects. The promotion of renewable technologies will be enhanced by the application of modern financial mechanisms which provide a series of alternative advantages, including the decrease of the impact of the risks entailed in the conventional financing schemes, as well as attractive terms to potential investors and to energy users. The present paper presents an analytical overview of the most important modern financial mechanisms aiming to contribute to the development and wider application of renewable energy sources.
