Renewable energy (Environment)
Triodos Bank has supported Ecotricity since we helped finance their first turbine, at Lynch Knoll in Gloucestershire, in 1996. Over a decade later, and we’re still working closely together. Ecotricity now run one of the most UK’s most visible wind turbines, Green Park, which towers over junction 11 of the M4 motorway and provides enough energy for over 1,000 homes and businesses.
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.
