Special Renewable Energies Initiative strengthening German companies’ position in international competition

With immediate effect, cover is available under the German Federal Government export credit insurance scheme for transactions in the field of renewable energies that include up to 70 percent foreign-sourced goods or services. Usually the share of foreign-sourced goods and services is capped at 49 percent. Furthermore, the Special Renewable Energies Initiative provides for greater flexibility in financing local costs.
