Recently, Voltage Group entered into partnership agreements with Oschadbank JSC and ProGredit Bank. The key goal is to develop a simplified mechanism for lending to mutual customers. Among the advantages are the accelerated procedure for credit decisions by banks, optimized down payment, favourable collateral conditions, and most importantly, special attention of banks to VOLTAGE customers.
According to Dmytro Nechiporenko, Business Development Director of Voltage Group, assistance in choosing the optimal financial programs for clients is an important part of business support and is conditioned by market conditions. "Today, business leaders are forced to optimize the energy consumption of businesses in an extremely short time. There are several reasons for this. First, world and Ukrainian energy prices are breaking records (for example, the price of electricity for domestic businesses has doubled). Secondly, electricity distribution tariffs have increased. Third, the transition to renewable energy sources (RES) is a geopolitical response to the challenges of the times, according to which to implement the Paris Agreement, world powers plan to switch to 100% (RES) in total energy supply, aiming for full decarbonisation by 2050. ". All this, according to Dmytro Nechyporenko, intensifies today's demand for the construction of roof SES and the need to choose the optimal financing programs.
"In this context, in all communications with the bank, Voltage Group helps in finding profitable financial solutions for both clients and financial institutions on the basis of competent technical expertise. In addition, we are constantly working to expand partnership programs with Ukrainian banks to provide customers with the widest possible range of financing programs to improve the energy efficiency of customers' businesses. If earlier the main player in the market of financing such projects was JSB UKRGASBANK, today we see the activation of other banks, as evidenced by the latest partnership agreements between VOLTAGE and financial institutions, "- said the director of business development.
Dmytro Nechyporenko also expressed forecasts for further active "revival" of the rooftop solar power plant market, as the current situation requires companies to critically reduce energy consumption and the share of electricity in production costs. This, in turn, according to the director of business development of the Voltage Group, will be possible only through energy "reformatting" of enterprises and the transition to renewable energy sources.
