The Hamburg-based solar and wind farm operator Blue Elephant Energy (www.blueelephantenergy.com) has two further investment partners in Barmenia and uniVersa. The two insurance groups will provide participation right capital of EUR 50 million to a subsidiary of BEE for a period of 20 years. Together with the equity capital that BEE will contribute and the project financing at the park level, renewable energy plants worth around EUR 300 million can be purchased from this investment partnership.
Dr. Gerd Weidenfeld, CFO of Blue Elephant Energy AG comments: "Barmenia and uniVersa are
perfect partners for us. Their interest in long-term ESG investments fits perfectly with our
renewable energy investments. Our pipeline of attractive projects is well filled, so we can
invest the funds from this partnership very quickly."
Dr. Anton Buchhart, Head of the Investment Department at Barmenia, comments: "Blue Elephant Energy AG is very well positioned in the future market of solar and wind energy generation and has excellent access to attractive projects. We are thus continuing on our
sustainable path in Barmenia's capital investment. " Frank Sievert, Member of the Board of
uniVersa, added: "Investments that have a positive impact on the environment are becoming
increasingly important for the insurance industry and we are therefore very pleased to be able
to further expand our portfolio in this area together with BEE. "
Including Gothaer insurance, with which an investment partnership has been in place since 2016, BEE has now been able to win three renowned insurance groups for investment cooperations.
