Wind Farm Roggeplaat
Renewable energy (Environment)
Wind farm Roggeplaat operates four new Enercon E-82 2.3 MW wind turbines, which in 2013 delivered green energy to 8,800 households. The wind turbines are situated in a cluster on the Roggeplaat island, on both sides of the Oosterschelde flood barrier (part of the Delta Works) in the municipality Schouwen-Duiveland. Wind farm Roggeplaat is a joint-venture between Triodos Renewables Europe Fund and project developer E-Connection.
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.
