Renewable Energies (RE) project finance portfolio

Whether independent power producers, utility companies, financial and institutional investors, or `yieldcos´, our clients active across wind power (on- and offshore) and solar technologies (photovoltaic, solar thermal power plants) have a team comprising more than 50 staff members in Hamburg and New York at their disposal.

Our core markets include Europe and North America as well as other selected countries worldwide. We arrange and finance transactions based on long-term private-sector power purchase agreements (PPAs). With the energy transition advancing, we are increasingly shifting our attention to adjacent technologies such as battery storage, electrolysers, networks, etc.

Commerzbank, and specifically the CoC Energy, has been supporting companies along the renewable energies value chain for decades, thereby developing extensive knowledge of technologies, market participants, and financing structures.

Our competence center Energy offering comprises bilateral and syndicated (non-recourse) project financings as well as the entire range of corporate banking services for companies across the renewable energy industry.
