Funding for projects and electricity generation plants
Kallista Energy owns all the wind farms that it operates. We finance our investments partly with equity capital and also by means of bank debt. Credit institutions play an essential role in our development and are trusted partners with which we maintain long-term relationships.
Our priorities: accuracy and forecasting
From the first draw-down until the repayment of debts that are mainly taken out over more than 15 years, Kallista Energy monitors and anticipates changes in prudential ratios. No loans established by Kallista Energy have met with any structural problems. All have complied with their prudential ratios and those arising from takeovers of wind farms that are already built and financed are most often gradually restructured.
Optimisation of debt levels, volatility of output, monitoring commitments
Funding for our wind farms is largely facilitated by the expertise of our dedicated team An in-depth forecast for the operation of the wind farm and its capacity to generate cash flows throughout its life cycle is required for realistic and effective management of the assets.
Financing power plants whose lifespan will exceed 20 years is very complex. Banking establishments therefore play an essential role in our development and are trusted partners.
Furthermore, by mobilising equity capital and investing over more than 20 years, Kallista Energy Group is a long-term operator in the French energy market.
