Environmental projects

Who we work with

Renewable energy has attracted considerable investment activity in recent years, despite steady reductions in government subsidies. We are experienced in raising capital, both in the form of debt and equity, for renewable energy generating projects that use proven technologies such as wind, hydro power and solar.

We have a track record of raising risk capital for commercial developers and community benefit societies. Since 2011 we have raised over £35 million for these organisations, helping to construct new renewable energy generating assets and thereby helping to increase the UK’s renewable energy generation capacity alongside bringing significant benefits to local communities.

Dart Renewables Limited

Bond issue

Dart Renewables Limited is a small-scale hydro power scheme developer based in Devon. During 2015 we helped them to launch a £1.3 million bond issue to raise the finance required to build a 300 kW hydro scheme at Totnes Weir on the river Dart. The Totnes project, which was successfully commissioned in December 2015, offers significant environmental benefits beyond the generation of clean electricity as it incorporates a state of the art fish pass which enables salmon and other migratory fish to travel upstream past the weir to spawn. The hydro scheme will also benefit the wider local community by providing cheap, clean electricity to an adjacent local school and an affordable housing development.

The bond issue was very successful and reached full subscription in just under three weeks. Investment in the bond came primarily from individual investors, including many local investors who live in the Totnes area.
