REPIN: Main objective
Key elements
Main objective
 Create more
RE deal flow
 Focus is on
refinancing of
commercial
bank debt
1
Lower cost of capital to improve RE project bankability:
provide commercial lenders with ‘guaranteed exit’ and
remove refinancing risk premium from equity
2
Free commercial lending capacity for further RE
investments
3
Enable institutional investors with varying risk/reward
profiles to acquire mature long-term RE assets
Ultimate goal: simultaneously stimulate deal flow and engage
institutional investors to increase overall RE financing

for example:
for example:
for example:
Banks
Straight pass-through of loans
from a project or portfolio
Pension
funds
Equity
provider
Issuance of notes from a loan
portfolio
Insurers &
re-insurer
Other
sponsors
Securitisation of loan
portfolio(s)
Other
asset
managers
RE debt
provider
 Sell loans/cash
flows from
operational
projects to freeup capital
 Projects need to
meet minimum
standard
 Sets minimum standards (technical, legal)
 Aggregates & brokers RE loan portfolios
 Offers transaction vehicles that meet institutional
investors’ different risk/reward expectations
→ All vehicles could be structures with or without
credit enhancement
 Monitors & manages loan portfolios (potentially with
assistance of initial debt provider)

GEEREF follows a triple bottom line
focussing on:
Climate change impact – Planet
• CO2 emission avoidance
• Bringing more RE generation capacity on stream
• Enhancing EE
Social impact – People
• Increasing access to energy and electricity
• Creating sustainable employment
Financial sustainability – Profit
• Generating market- and risk-adequate returns
• First exits and reflows for investors already achieved
• Promising portfolio of underlying RE projects built and
first generating revenues

Annex

Rationale for REPIN

Need to overcome “chicken and egg” dilemma:
developers lack investment signals while institutional
investors lack suitable products for RE investments

Guaranteed access to refinancing should stimulate more
deal flow

Institutional investors have interest in long-term, stable
and index-linked cash flows from operational RE
projects
Regulatory changes (Basel III & Solvency II) should lead
to shorter debt tenors and earlier RE refinancing
requirements


Aggregation of projects and standardisation can
streamline approval process and reduce transaction cost

Technical support required to structure suitable
investments and reduce knowledge gaps
REPIN
REPIN bridges between short-term lenders and long-term institutional
investors

Validate concept with market professionals
(on-going)
Identify a group of institutional investors that
have an interest to continue the dialogue
Identify (a) sample portfolio(s) to develop
potential structures (real/dummy)
Structure first pilot transactions to prove
concept

GEEREF is actively fundraising and
structures new compartment
Fundraising:
• GEEREF team is actively fundraising
• First close December 2013 with private investors
• Fundraising open until Q3/2014
New compartment envisaged:
• Interesting dealflow outside of classical GEEREF focus
• Mostly: offgrid RE access to energy: solar lanterns, SHS
• Interesting complement to GEEREF
• Higher return and risk than classical GEEREF
17
Key investment themes
Renewable energy
demand growth
• 1,600 GW additional capacity to 2035
• $3,144bn investment needed
Energy efficiency gains
• National policies to reduce energy intensity by up to 66% by 2035
• Up to $5,000 billion investment opportunity
Maturing private equity
markets
• Doubled to over 10% of global investment in last decade
• Strong investment performance vs. comparables
Compelling downside
protection
• Highly diversified portfolio across 150 projects
• Preferred return mechanism significantly enhances risk / reward profile
