A Pathway to a Sustainable Future: ENERGY EFFICIENCY
The Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) sets binding annual EU-wide energy consumption reduction targets to contribute to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. To help achieve this goal, some countries, such as France and Poland, have already put in place mechanisms for Energy Efficiency Certificates (also known as White Certificates). These certificates are issued after a reduction in energy consumption.
Our Energy Efficient financial solutions
Together with our partners, we will help you perform an on-site energy efficiency audit, where we identify and map energy-saving opportunities.
We can also help you define the most appropriate investment roadmap to achieve your decarbonization goals, together with the appropriate financing solutions.
We propose structuring project financing with shared savings of Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) that generate positive cash flows from an early stage.
We obtain a project performance guarantee from the engineering company or equipment supplier to ensure a minimum amount of energy savings.
It can cover up to 100% of the CAPEX with an optimal contract duration and shared savings, and can be de-consolidated through an SPV structure or through a non-recourse junior debt.
In addition, potential grants and subsidies are optimized, as they can help and support your projects.
Support during the origination phase
We assist you in identifying energy efficiency projects subject to white certificate financing and help you through all steps of the process to optimize and secure their value.
Assistance in secondary market trading
With an extensive list of counterparties and long experience in the different secondary markets we cover, we help you obtain or sell white certificates competitively.
Keep up to date with regulation
