Combining profitability with sustainability is our mission! A diligently prepared financial planning serves as the best basis for a highly cost-effective clean energy project with an attractive return on investment, a steady and a sustainable cash flow as well as a reliable power supply.
We support governments, organisations, businesses as well as property owners in developing and implementing long-term clean energy strategies and programs and assist in structuring bankable projects. We use our strong relationships in the financial sector to make debt and equity financing available for such projects.
Together with investors and project owners we develop financial strategies including due diligence measures for project acquisitions and financing, tax and accounting assessments and access to debt and equity funds.
Our financial team individually analyses the needs of each customer. We find appropriate solutions on one hand for customers, who are looking for a reliable and profitable capital investment and on the other hand for customers, who intend to reduce their energy costs and become independent from unreliable, expensive and polluting energy sources. For the second client profile we offer different options to realise a clean power supply:
EQUITY: The customer pays with his own funds and owns the clean energy solution. This is the most simple and profitable way of financing, because no interest payments have to be incurred.
DEBT CAPITAL: The customer obtains a loan to fund the purchase of the renewable energy system. Frequently a positive cash flow can be achieved already in the first year. Upon request our finance team can assist to arrange for loans and other financing models.
OPERATION LEASE: The customer leases a clean energy system from a 3rd party with a purchasing option at the end of the leasing term. This off-balance sheet financing option guarantees immediate savings in electricity costs and also ensures the option, to create an asset for the client later.
POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENT (PPA): The customer buys the generated power from a 3rd party, which owns the clean energy system. The customer often can opt for the purchase of the system at the end of the agreement. This off-balance sheet financing option ensures a reliable green power supply without interruptions and offers the possibility of cost savings – without any investment costs in the first place.
