Factoring in it's most extended version combines invoicing, escrowing and payment insurance into one service for third party suppliers of products/services. It's doubtful if the current factors (financials that offer factoring) will contribute a lot to the massive energy transition investment wave, as power exchanges does this work. For regular factoring there will be not much market in the energy transition wave. But for adjusted standard services (invoicing power deliveries and acting as escrow) certainly. There is also certainly a future for factors in the building process of energy investments. Being the controlling third party. This independent third party function will develop to an independent industry and mostly will grow as side company out of the factoring companies, as this is closest to their current core business model of all the financials (similar to the phased mortgage schedules that are used in real estate construction processes). Energy as Factoring is maybe a in only some situations supporting concept capable of generating a massive energy transition investment wave.
