Funding and know-how from the bank that knows the sector best
Energy & Climate
For a transition from a carbon-based economy to a sustainable economy, it's essential to reduce energy demand, to use energy as efficiently as possible, and to invest massively in renewable energy systems, while switching to low carbon fuels.
Triodos Bank considers energy to be a basic human need and therefore something that we need to ensure is being generated and used on a sustainable basis for future generations.

The amount of CO2 emissions that are avoided by the projects funded by Triodos Bank in 2015.
Our current energy consumption causes huge environmental damage: we're burning resources that belong to future generations.
If the temperature of planet earth increases by to 2 ˚C or more, climate change will have potentially catastrophic results. Therefore our carbon output needs to stay below 450 ppm (parts per million). Triodos Bank even advocates decreasing output back below 350 ppm.
Our long term goal is a complete transition from carbon-based to renewable energy.
The total amount of wind, solar and hydro power production capacity currently funded by Triodos Bank.
By the end of 2015 Triodos Bank, and its climate and energy funds financed over 358 renewables projects across Europe.
The amount of renewable energy produced by the projects financed by Triodos Bank is equivalent to the electricity use of around 1,000,000 European households.

Let's connect it all together
After decades of experience, starting financing small projects, energy has become a significant part of our business, through the bank and through our investment funds.
We’ve seen and completed more renewable energy projects than most other banks in the world. Having developed the skills of catalysing the early renewable energy industry, we want to harness these competencies to help catalyse the next phase. This is a huge opportunity and we can only do this when all of us take our role to connect it all together.

The impact on Energy & Climate
By focusing our attention on the deployment of mature technologies such as wind energy and solar power, we are able to make a meaningful contribution to the necessary transition to our energy system.
Having financed renewable energy projects for 25 years, we have built up a wealth of experience and expertise that is valued by the renewable energy developers and operators who we work with.
We are also extending our impact by working with more diverse ownership structures such as community renewable energy schemes and financing energy efficiency infrastructure within the built environment.
