New Government figures released today show that renewable energy generated more than 25% of the UK’s electricity in the first quarter of this year – with onshore wind setting a quarterly record high, providing 8.3% of our power, again demonstrating its role as a key technology in our energy mix. Onshore wind increased by 20.2% compared to Q1 2016.
With over 20 years in sustainable investment, Thrive Renewables, (previously Triodos Renewables) has provided mezzanine loans for two wind farms in Scotland that will have a combined total capacity of 11.5MW which will generate and deliver clean, smart energy to the UK grid.
The growth of UK renewables in the past ten years has been a real success, yet renewables are still often criticised for being 'intermittent'. Matthew Clayton gives his view on what the future has in store.
Thrive Renewables Plc (Thrive) bond offer, promoted by ethical lender, Triodos Bank and available for the first time through an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) with Abundance, attracts over 900 everyday investors, from all walks of life, and funds £10M of renewable energy projects.
