Accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy.
Digital Renewable Energy Bank
Our mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy by reimagining clean energy finance bringing forward solar and wind generation projects.
AIRSOLAR is a technology start-up that plans to become a digital bank offering concessional digital smart loans to utility-scale renewable energy projects globally.
We are developing Advanced Energy Financing Technology (AEFT) that will allow us to offer lower-cost project finance to developers while incentivizing innovation and adoption of technologies that improve the ecosystem, for example:
Combined wind + solar + battery
Digitized PPAs and
Alternative off-take arrangements
Our Concessional Loans
AIRSOLAR's advanced technology will allow us to structure our financing terms and conditions very differently from most commercial lenders. We envisage being able to make available a range of loan concessions to help solar and wind projects get off the ground sooner and be more sustainable, for example:
Lower interest rates
Longer tenors (up to 30 years)
Tailored loan repayment profiles
Extended periods of capitalisation of interest and interest-only periods
Automatic loan monitoring
Ability to absorb an element of future risk (e.g. where there is uncertain energy pricing or off-take)
Our vision will see AIRSOLAR achieving many firsts including
1st digital project finance smart loan contracts
1st to offer Self Managed Super Funds & Self Directed IRAs access to direct infrastructure investment
1st to offer cryptocurrency holders access to direct infrastructure investments
1st blockchain funded digital project finance bank
1st institutional led renewable energy backed security token offerings

We have developed complex financial commerical investment bank grade project finance models for your solar, wind or any other type of renewable energy project.
We can help you structure your project to enable security tokens in the capital structure, either as a supplement to traditional debt and equity sources of funds or to totally replace traditional sources of capital.
PROJECT FINANCE ADVISORY
Our team has decades of Infrastructure Advisory and Project Financing experience. Together we have worked on the majority of the major capital projects in Asia Pacific.
DIGITAL SECURITY OFFERINGS
We can help your project raise capital from non-traditional sources. We specialize in Project Finance specific security token offerings and have developed our own proprietary Tokens which enable standard project finance financing features.
FOR FINANCIAL SPONSORS AND IPPs
PROJECT FINANCE MODELLING
Detailed high-grade project finance modelling that follows best practice and includes simple but effective model solve macros
SIZING AND STRUCTURING OF DEBT AND EQUITY
Solving debt size (or other variables) to target Equity IRR and min DSCR constraints
Optimizing the whole model including funding sources and types, order of construction draws and repayment schedules to find the most competitive bid that also meets debt and equity return requirements.
Understanding what the optimal mix and timing if each source of capital is critical to achieving an optimal bid. When negotiation with lenders testing the best combination of terms is crucial.
TERM SHEET MODELLING
Detailed term sheet modelling is critical in order to be able to model different terms for each lender in the lending group. Amortization profiles, equity lockups
SOLVING FOR OPTIMAL SERVICE PAYMENTS
It is crucial on every bid to solve for the lowest possible service payment that also gives equity enough headroom and such that debt covenants are safely met under deferent downside and payment mechanism scenarios
PROJECT FINANCE/PPP MODELLING
International best practice and market standard financial modelling informed by recent live deals
INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT AND DEAL STRUCTURING
We have developed complex financial commercial investment bank grade project finance models for your solar, wind or any other type of renewable energy project.
SIZING AND STRUCTURING OF GOVERNMENT CONTRIBUTIONS
Solving for the funding gap and then structuring that funding gap as either a grant, or a concessional government loan into the project. Critically can show the return of government capital.
"OPTIONEERING” AND COMPLEX SCENARIO ANALYSIS
Detailed scenario manager build into our models allows for complex scenario analysis to find optimal outcomes for different purposes. Demand, Opex, Debt and Equity and maximum government contributions can all be changed in scenarios and the model outputs compared between scenarios and against the base case.
UTILITY-SCALE PROJECTS WE LIKE
Australia-Singapore Power Link Project (ASPL) - $20BN to $30BN
As an island nation, Singapore is reliant on imported Liquid Natural Gas for 95% of its electricity. This leaves Singapore's electricity consumers excessively exposed to the vagaries of global oil and gas pricing. Sun Cable will produce approximately a fifth of Singapore's electricity through solar power, sourced from the Australian desert and transmitted via a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable.
Walcha Energy Project - $5BN
The Walcha Energy Project is situated around the town of Walcha.
Walcha is located in the New England tablelands and is approximately 55km south of Armidale, NSW. The Walcha Energy Project combines solar and wind energy generation with pumped storage hydro to provide a new, reliable source of renewable energy for NSW. The electricity generation potential is equivalent to 15% of NSW's electricity demand - more than the output of Liddell Power Station.
Society has a growing need for battery metals to enable a full transition to clean energy and electric transportation.
And that means we need to find new, more responsible sources for those metals. We believe that polymetallic nodules are the source with by far the least environmental and social impacts. Polymetallic nodules sitting on top of the seabed can be collected without drilling or having to move rocks or dirt. They are made of almost 100% usable minerals, compared to ores mined from the land which have increasingly low yields (often below 1%). This means that nodule collection has 99% less solid waste compared to land-based mining, and generates no toxic tailings.
Deep Green plan to lift them to the surface, take them to shore and process them with near-zero solid waste and no tailings; no deforestation, and with careful attention not to harm the integrity of the deep ocean ecosystem. On a global scale, using ocean nodules to create 1 billion Electric Vehicle (EV) batteries will generate at least 75% less CO2 than using ores from land-based mines. For society, sourcing base metals from these ocean nodules means no disruption to indigenous peoples or any community because the site is far offshore, in international waters, in the deep ocean, where no one lives. And unlike many existing cobalt mines, this also means zero child labor, and much safer jobs.
