    Dutch-based PowerField bags €500M to develop, manage energy systems for a sustainable world

    February 2, 2023 - Silicon Canals



      Wormer, the Netherlands-based PowerField, a company that develops, builds, and manages solar parks, charging stations, and energy storage systems, announced on Wednesday that it has raised €500M in structured equity and portfolio financing.

      The financing came from EIG and Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW).

      LBBW provided the portfolio financing with the Common Terms Agreement intended to finance solar parks with a capacity of 500 MWp in the coming years.

      LBBW is a German commercial bank with a strong focus on the European renewable energy sector. The bank has provided financing for many sustainable projects and has a balance sheet of €282B.

      The financial close for the first 120 MWp took place on January 30, 2023. In addition, there is a facility with predetermined conditions for future solar projects.

      PowerField says it will use the funds to develop an integrated platform combining solar parks, charging stations for electric cars (EVs), and batteries, thereby contributing to a more sustainable world.

      Jean-Louis Bertholet, CEO of PowerField, says, “We want to build the largest virtual power plant in Europe, in which we combine solar energy with storage in batteries and charging facilities for electric cars. We are proud that EIG and LBBW have joined us and that we have found two partners who support our ambitions and want to help us achieve the sustainable energy transition.”
