Indirect risk sharing instrument to be used to cover up to 50% of the credit risk associated with a portfolio of loans outstanding on DZ Bank AG (DZ) balance sheet. With the resources made available by the guarantee, DZ will undertake to grant new loans to eligible renewable energy projects. The new loans will not be covered by the risk sharing instrument.
This operation will be set up as a risk sharing instrument covering a portfolio of renewable energy assets. The instrument is designed to facilitate the intermediary to undertake new projects.
The project comprises a multi-sector multi-scheme operation. All of the schemes are expected to fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU. Should any scheme have a negative impact on an area forming part of the Natura 2000 network (as defined under Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC and the Birds Directive 79/409/EEC), then the Bank would require the financial intermediary and the final beneficiary to act according to the provisions of the aforementioned directives as transposed in the national law.
The Bank will require the financial intermediary to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the schemes have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Dir 2004/18/EEC/ or 2004/17/EEC and Dir. 2007/66/EC), with parallel publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate.
Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
