Helping to Shape the Energy Transition Helping to Shape the Energy Transition



For one customer group, however – the small and mid-sized enterprise segment (SMEs) – the energy transition brings particular challenges, for instance in the form of higher prices for electric power. Consequently, improved energy efficiency is becoming an increasingly important priority for companies, both from a technical and business standpoint. To support them, the Commerzbank Corporate Clients Segment which serves the needs of SMEs, has entered into cooperative relationships with external experts of the technical consulting and certification organisation TÜV. The combination of technical, strategic and financial advice creates the necessary conditions for informed decision making on the part of companies. If energy use is taken into account at an early stage when planning investments, companies can benefit from development loans at favourable rates. With advice on available subsidies and expertise in structured finance, Commerzbank develops long-term financing solutions.
