e3 – carbon reduction finance
e3 is an independent fund manager specialized in financing initiatives and projects in the areas of energy transition and the circular economy.
e3 and its funds are active in this niche market which is characterized by new technologies, often combined with less experienced but nevertheless motivated management teams. Expertise in the area of structured (project) finance and venture capital combined with access to relevant technical knowledge enables e3 to finance a broad spectrum of these initiatives.
Over the last 10 years, the e3 teams have financed more than 200 projects and initiatives. The amount involved was over 175 MEUR. The e3 funds provide mainly subordinated financing, both equity and debt. By taking this position, a leverage is created for other financiers such as banks. (The total volume of the financed projects has now reached over 500 MEUR.)
Besides a good return, e3 aims to achieve an impact with focus on goals 7, 12, 13 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) set by the United Nations. Demonstrable CO2 reduction is a funding requirement at all times.
