eEnergy (AIM: EAAS), the digital energy services company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new €10m committed project funding facility (“The Facility”) to extend both the scope and scale of its financing arrangements with SUSI Partners AG (“SUSI”).
The Facility extends the relationship eEnergy has had with SUSI in Ireland to the UK. In making available financing for up to twelve years and across eEnergy’s range of energy efficiency and onsite generation technologies, the Facility enables eEnergy to continue to create innovative, market leading capital free solutions for its customers.
SUSI is a leading European fund manager specialising in sustainable energy infrastructure investments. The Facility is being provided through the SUSI Energy Efficiency Fund II.
The Group continues to work with SUSI to grow the long-term partnership beyond this Facility, with a view to scaling funding capacity for Energy Efficiency projects to match the Group’s growth ambitions.
Harvey Sinclair, CEO of eEnergy, commented: “The extension of the project funding from SUSI to include the UK market is a significant stepping stone for eEnergy and will support our rollout of multi-technology solutions across metering, EV charging, solar and lighting over the coming months. We are excited to build on our existing successful relationship and look forward to working with SUSI to develop a longer-term funding strategy as we continue to see increasing levels of appetite from businesses, schools and other institutions for capital free solutions to deliver lower carbon outcomes.”
Fabian Karger, Investment Director of SUSI, commented: “The extension of our project funding facility marks another important step in the successful collaboration with eEnergy and strengthening SUSI`s presence in the United Kingdom. Providing capital for customer-oriented energy solutions as offered by eEnergy will be paramount on our way to achieve Net Zero.”
