Renewable energy (Environment)
Hoathly Hill, a home life community in West Sussex, bought a biomass boiler system with the help of a Triodos Bank loan. It burns locally sourced woodchips to provide heating and water for its residents.
Energy is a necessity in modern life but the current dependence on fossil fuels to provide it has a high environmental and social impact. We believe that a fundamental transition is needed away from a carbon based economy to a renewable one. By lending and investing in this sector we try to stimulate this transition, with our main focus on financing solar, wind and hydro energy.
