Part of Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking, Energy Finance is a sector-focused team dedicated to providing funding solutions to the African power sector.

Energy Finance recognises the importance of sustainable power across the African continent and the role of the private sector, in the form of independent power producers (IPPs), in powering Africa. As such, we have been funding power projects and a key participant in landmark power transactions across the continent for the past two decades. Our team of sector specialists focusing on the African power sector is responsible for initiating, executing and managing transactions, including providing:

  • project finance;
  • acquisition finance;
  • embedded-energy finance (corporate and industrial offtake);
  • letters of credits and working-capital facilities;
  • structured financial products; and
  • preference-share funding to support equity investments.

As part of our power sector focus, we are also committed to funding and supporting the entire value chain, from power infrastructure developers to contractors and original equipment providers.
