On behalf of the German-South African Energy Partnership engaged by GIZ and in cooperation with the South African-German chamber of commerce (AHK), DIFC has created a financing guide. The guide contains financing options for green energy projects as well as energy efficiency projects in South Africa and describes both, German and international financing programmes. Another important focus is on subsidies for market and project development.

The financing guide differentiates according to the status of the companies with regard to their engagement in South Africa or their affiliation to German companies, in case it is a South African company.

The complete financing guide can be downloaded here.

Since a number of years South Africa has developed a more proactive energy policy in the sense of Energiewende (energy transition) including energy efficiency. Since 2011 Germany and South Africa are accordingly cooperating in the field of energy. The South African-German Energy Programme (SAGEN) is funded by the German Government and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the Department of Energy (DoE) and the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI).

SAGEN in its next phase aims at promoting a few specific, highly promising energy efficiency technologies. In order to make an informed decision on which technologies to promote and support to contribute to electricity savings, SAGEN entrusted DFIC with a study on the potential of energy efficiency technologies.

As part of a restructuring of its energy supply the University of Cologne plans to focus more on renewable energy sources in the future. In this context, DFIC was commissioned with the planning of a sustainable cooling and heating supply based on geothermal energy for a new institute building on the mathematical-scientific campus. DFIC is planning to use so-called high-performance energy piles (HEP) to develop the potential of geothermal energy with a stable temperature level throughout the year of approx. 10°C at a depth of 15 - 30 m (near surface geothermal area).

The 28 m deep HEPs, each filled with up to 30,000 litres of water, can be sunk into the ground outside the building and provide regenerative heating or cooling capacity, either operating as a heat source or alternatively as heat sink. The HEP system develops a 100% renewable and extremely efficient form of energy supply, especially with regard to the supply of low-temperature heating and cooling requirements.

DFIC has developed sustainable heat supply solutions in an industrial park for Stadtwerke Coesfeld. In this project DFIC has not only identified potentials for further supply of renewable energy heat from the biogas plant located at the former Bundeswehr site Industriepark Nord.Westfalen (IPNW), but also through the possible inclusion and energetic use of municipal green waste for heat supply.

After winning the tender, DFIC is once again providing advice on export and project financing in various countries as part of the Energy Efficiency Export Initiative of the Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). The consultancy services offered cover a wide range of technologies and financing methods in accordance with company-specific requirements. The use of subsidies for the various promotion possibilities in the phase of market and project development is also included.

DFIC has been supporting the Export Initiative since 2012 and has extensive experience in consulting and implementation of financing for companies and projects. Furthermore, DFIC has prepared various financing studies on foreign markets, which assess local financing and promotion possibilities for the respective target markets and help German companies to find the right financing and subsidy options for their projects.
