Thrive Renewables (Kessingland)
Renewable energy (Environment)
Kessingland Wind Farm, Suffolk comprising of two 2.05MW wind turbines was constructed in 2011. The wind farm is located close to the North Sea Coast, just 5 miles south of Ness Point. This location also benefits from the coastal wind resource. The wind farm is owned by Triodos Renewables plc.
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.
