Redefining the future through
green energy finance

SHARE

Renewable energy is a vital investment for a cleaner, more sustainable future. This is why Absa Corporate and Investment Bank, as sole arranger and underwriter, has arranged and syndicated a with R5,2bn senior debt package for Globeleq towards the refinancing of three South African renewable energy assets.

This transaction strongly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the financing of clean energy and the acceleration of investments that make a sustainable impact on the communities we serve. In addition, Eskom will save more than R1bn across the three assets over the remaining Power Purchase Agreement tenures. The benefits to Globeleq include more competitive debt terms, upsized facility amounts, extended loan tenures, relaxed financial covenants and the release of cash to various stakeholders.
