Pioneering Project Finance
Alternergy seeks to open the floodgates of the domestic banking market to renewables.
Alternergy seeks to open the floodgates of the domestic banking market to renewables. Our projects are funded with non-recourse project finance, using local currency whenever possible to reduce foreign exchange risk.
In working with banks, we strive to instill confidence in our management experience. We negotiate a balance of risk-sharing between lender and borrower on market-based financing terms and conditions.
The project loan facility for the Pililla wind farm was given a Sustainable Energy Finance Award by the IFC (International Finance Corporation) on August 31, 2016, and was featured as a Master’s Degree case study on renewable project finance at Yale University.
Even today, banks are still more comfortable lending to coal power projects. We take a patient, collaborative approach to highlighting the long-term financial upsides of renewables and creating the structures needed to gain the buy-in of lending institutions.
In every Alternergy project, we provide lenders access to world-class technical analysis. They not only gain assurance of the project’s technical design robustness but also come away with knowledge and benchmarks to apply to future renewable lending opportunities.
