Investing in Total Solutions

Energy Finance enables businesses to invest in new equipment to improve operational efficiency with zero capital outlay.  This means they benefit from reduced energy and operations & maintenance costs over time. 

Debt Solutions for the Energy sector 

We support private equity and corporate clients' needs and strategic goals through senior secured loans that are tailored through all business cycles. We have the strength to structure, underwrite and hold significant positions. We offer both floating and fixed rate options and are capable of a broad range of transaction sizes.

Equity Investments to support energy projects

We typically reserve equity capital to focus on projects that directly utilise Siemens equipment and services and generally take a minority interest in a project, investing at financial close of project construction.  We combine an extensive track-record in equity investment to originate, structure and execute successful investments in the energy markets with an emphasis on generating superior returns together with our co-investors.

What our customers say...

We are delighted that Siemens, as well as becoming a project partner will also, through their technical division, support key aspects of the project including turbines, turbine installation and maintenance support

Overview of our process

We advise on the most appropriate form of funding and provide finance options.  We then confirm pricing once the equipment has been specified by you and capital price has been confirmed.

In order to ensure customers have the cash flow required to afford the regular payments, we will typically require latest full financials from the business, alongside any relevant supporting information, such as the nature of business activity. Our finance agreements are suited to businesses that have been trading for at least 3 years and have transaction sizes starting from £250k. 

Once a credit facility has been approved, you are then required to sign and return the documentation to us.  For leases, a purchase order is then placed for the equipment and it is delivered or installed by the supplier. For loans, the funds are transferred directly to your bank account.

Once the equipment is installed and on receipt of the certificate of acceptance from you confirming that the equipment is in working order, we activate the lease and pay the supplier.

Benefits of finance

  • Access to energy efficient technology without use of capital resources
  • Simplified budgeting and financial transparency with fixed payments
  • Regular technology updates could provide efficiency savings
  • Expected savings in energy costs are used to offset monthly payments, potentially reducing net investment costs to zero
  • Often no deposit required, which may help cash flow
