Crowdfunding is a catalyst for investment in renewable technologies

13th August 2013

Crowdfunding, a method of investment which unlocks capital for individuals to invest in a clean energy future, is already delivering financial benefits for both business and civil society. Vivienne Westwood, speaking at a recent Aldersgate Group event, stated that: "What's good for the planet is good for the economy", and crowdfunding is evidence of this intrinsic link. This event was in partnership with the Trillion Fund which is the first organisation to capitalise on crowdfunding for renewable energy projects. For more information, click here.

Andrew Raingold, Executive Director of the Aldersgate Group said: "The Aldersgate Group and our business members are delighted to partner with Trillion Fund and explore new financing opportunities to invest directly in renewable technologies at scale. This provides everyone with a way to make high returns from their savings at the same time as building a better future."
