Burgar Hill in the Orkney Isles has been a wind turbine test station since the 1980s. The landlord, Mervyn Spence, has used a Triodos Bank loan to erect his own turbine alongside the existing projects.
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.
