Renewable energy (Environment)
Lodore Hydro is a small hydro-electric project in Keswick, Cumbria, built on the site of a much older generating station.
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.
