Financing your wind transactions with EKF

EKF Denmark´s Export Credit Agency leads the world in wind financing. We have financed onshore and offshore wind farms all over the world for 20 years.
  • ​Establishing a wind farm can be a complex matter for a number of reasons, however, financing does not have to be one of them. EKF can help you obtain financing for your wind project whether you choose a financing model based on corporate risk or in the form of project financing. We have taken part in a variety of financing constellations, displaying flexibility in the pursuit of the most optimal solution.
     
    We can offer guarantees covering a significant part of your wind transaction. This can help to speed up the negotiations and ensure that the financing, and in the end, the project, will be realised.

    ​Projects worth several hundred billion Danish kroner

    EKF is one of the world´s most experienced financial partners within wind financing. Since our first wind transaction in 1998, we have helped finance more than 100 wind farms all over the world, worth a total of more than DKK 100 billion. Among others, we have participated in the financing of Africa´s largest wind farm in Kenya, participated in a large share of the offshore projects in the North Sea and participated in the financing of a number of wind farms in Europe, Australia as well as in South and Central America.
