Episode 23 of the Redefining Podcast goes inside a Renewable Energy banker’s mind.

Without banks, there would be no energy transition. Debt has provided more finance than Equity in the development of Wind and Solar. Being Bankable means for a project: access to credit, lower equity requirement and faster scaling up of new clean infrastructure.

With Lisa McDermott Executive Director Project Financing at ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Gerard Reid and Laurent Segalen review the four risks that need to be mitigated towards bankability: Technology risk, Credit Risk, Execution Risk and Market Risk. 

Then we explore the various promising technologies and assess their path to bankability: FloatingSolar, FloatingOffshoreWind, Blue and Green Hydrogen.
