Capcora wins former banker Wolf-Rüdiger Stahl to bolster its finance team.

Frankfurt am Main, 07.09.2022

The consulting firm Capcora, specialized on real assets, is drawing on the experience of another financing specialist from the energy and infrastructure sector. Since the beginning of September 2022, ex-banker Wolf-Rüdiger Stahl has been supporting the Capcora team as Senior Advisor within the framework of a cooperation.

Wolf contributes 30 years of experience from the banking world, where he devoted particular attention to the financing of energy and grid infrastructure. He implemented his first renewable energy project back in 1997. Until the end of 2020, he managed the newly established target sector "Infrastructure and Utilities" of the German financing institute Deutsche Anlagen Leasing (DAL) as division manager. Prior to this, he held senior positions at several German and international banks with a focus on project finance, including Banque Paribas, DG-Bank, Landesbank Rheinland-Pfalz and LBBW. Since June 2022, Wolf has been advising his long-standing partners, investors, project developers, banks and interested parties from his network on the implementation of their energy projects as an independent consultant. During his consulting work, he has already played a key role in the structuring and financing of a 200 MWp, subsidy-free photovoltaic project in Germany currently under construction and has thus been involved in one of the first large-scale projects of this kind.

“We are pleased to have Wolf, a well-known and experienced banker from the renewable energy sector, as a fellow campaigner. The German project finance market for renewable energies is currently facing a radical change - the expected sharp increase in the number of merchant solar and wind projects in the coming months and years poses challenges for many market participants. A lack of structuring know-how for such PPA projects could lead to a financing bottleneck. We are pleased to join forces with Wolf and support project developers, investors, and initiators as well as financing institutions in this challenge with an intelligent approach!” said Jochen Magerfleisch and Alexander Kuhn, Managing Partners at Capcora.

“I am particularly pleased that I can support the Capcora team in this exciting time and make my contribution to the realisation of the energy transition. The extensive range of services, the national and international presence, the numerous references with leading market participants and the team spirit inspire me.”, Wolf-Rüdiger Stahl happily adds, new Senior Advisor at Capcora.
