Renewable energy (Environment)
Father and son partnership, David and Mark Wallace, are planning to take advantage of the higher than average wind speeds on their estate in the Orkneys by building a wind turbine.
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.
