Renewable energy (Environment)
Triodos savers supported a loan from the Bank which helped Isle of Eigg to turn on its long-awaited green electricity grid in 2008.
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.
