Renewable energy (Environment)
Wind farm Growind operates 20 Vestas V90 3.0 MW wind turbines, which in 2013 provided 41,000 households with green energy. Growind is located at Eemshaven harbour, near Delfzijl, on the northern coast of The Netherlands, and started production in 2008. It is owned by several private investors and Triodos Renewables Europe Fund.
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.
