Wind Farm Ransonmoor
Renewable energy (Environment)
Wind farm Ransonmoor operates five turbines with a combined capacity of 10 MW, with which it can provide 7,600 households with green electricity. Ransonmoor is located in Cambridgeshire and is managed by renewable energy specialist Ecogen. In February 2013 Triodos Renewables Europe Fund diversified its geographical spread through an investment in the United Kingdom. Together with Triodos Renewables Plc, the Fund acquired a 49.8% stake in Ransonmoor Wind Park.
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.
