The growing demand for data and the infrastructure to host it has provided a new area of opportunity—data centers.

  • Project finance has long been a part of many important sectors of the economy including, conventional power, renewable energy, oil and gas, and transportation.
  • The growing demand for data has driven the construction of massive infrastructure, in the form of data centers, and the [renewable] energy required to operate them.
  • Borrowers can in the project finance space benefit from multiple sources of capital that can be highly structured to the needs of the project.

The demand for renewable energy and the need for capital to finance ever-larger data centers has brought leading global internet companies into the project finance market for the first time.

Wilmington Trust’s Will Marder, head of project finance, explains why as demand for renewable energy grows, so does the demand for sources of quality financing.
