European leader in renewables financing
Natixis is the leading arranger of renewable energy assets in Europe and No. 5 worldwide according to the IJ Global 2016 league table, the sector’s leading publication.
The bank set up 21 financings in France and worldwide, including 17 in Europe, totaling nearly 1.5 billion euros.
Natixis has been particularly successful in offshore wind power, where it stands as a leading player in Europe: Natixis has notably financed the Beatrice, Race Bank wind farms (based in the United Kingdom) and the Merkur wind farm based in Germany.
Natixis is also very well positioned in Italy, both in solar PV and wind power, having arranged a large number of transactions (Veronagest, Photosol, Sonnedix, Apulia, Quercus, etc.), and in particular the most important Italian renewables project bond i.e. the Brainwave refinancing.
This performance reflects Natixis' strong franchise in infrastructure finance worldwide: the bank ranks as No 9 Global Bookrunner and No 10 Global Mandated Lead Arranger of project finance loans in the 2016 Thomson Reuters league table.
