Debut Green Bond of EUR 750 million successfully issued

Berlin (11 May 2020) - Eurogrid GmbH, the parent company of the transmission system operator 50Hertz, is securing liquidity for the further grid expansion necessary for the energy transition with the issuance of its debut Green Bond in the amount of EUR 750 million. This will finance the grid connections Ostwind 1 and 2 of the offshore wind farms northeast of RĂ¼gen with a capacity of around 1.5 gigawatts. The corporate bond with a term of 12 years and an interest rate of 1.113 percent was issued yesterday on the regulated market with the support of BNP Paribas, Rabobank and UniCredit Bank from the circle of Eurogrid core banks. The subscribers come from Germany and, almost without exception, from other European countries, with a focus on Great Britain, France, the Benelux countries and Scandinavia. Like all public bonds, these securities are listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. The shareholders of Eurogrid GmbH are the Belgian Elia Group (80 %) and KfW Bankengruppe with 20 percent.


The projects Ostwind 1 and 2 projects are in line with the EU Action Plan on Climate Change. The EU's aim is to increase the number of households and businesses that can be supplied with electricity produced by wind energy, thereby avoiding CO2 emissions. The Green Bond complies with the principles of the International Capital Markets Association (ICMA). An independent evaluation of the Green Bond is carried out by the second party opinion provider and ESG-rating agency Vigeo Eiris.
