|Bank Triodos Bank|
With branches in the Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Spain and Germany, Triodos Bank has financed innovative energy and climate projects since the Chernobyl disaster in the mid 1980s.
By the end of 2009, Triodos Bank and its climate and energy funds under management were financing over 275 projects across Europe. Together they have a generating capacity of over 1000 MW.
This includes 175 wind farms, 85 solar plant and various biomass (15) and small hydro (19) projects, producing approximately 2.25 billion kWh per annum, or the equivalent of the electricity consumption of around 630,000 European households. This green power avoids CO2 emissions of over 800,000 tonnes per year.
Solutions for Biotectura is an innovative engineering and architecture business that tackles energy efficiency and sustainable construction projects. OKO is their first bioclimatic building, and was developed with finance from Triodos Bank Spain. Its sustainable offices include a Formation Centre for Sustainability, and a Centre for Innovation and Development.
