Wind parks and individual sites are usually financed externally. A popular model here is long-term project finance on a non-recourse basis, i.e. credit is provided solely against the equity, fixed assets and future cash flow of the wind park company, so that investors and operators are not exposed to any additional liability.
In collaboration with partner banks, we have already been successful in arranging and helping to organise project finance for more than 200 MW of output both at home and abroad. In doing so we have – whenever possible – made use of subsidised loans e.g. from the kfw banking group and we also have extensive expertise in this segment (application process, requirements, etc.).
