Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT)
Renewable energy (Environment)
Based in Machynlleth, Wales, Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) attracts over 60,000 visitors a year and pioneers renewable energy and sustainable technologies. Its education centre demonstrates how practical solutions can reduce pollution and waste and shows that living more sustainably can mean a better quality of life.
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.
