Sustainable Energy Investment Platform

Online investment platform

The stable and predictable earning profile of wind energy projects makes them an attractive investment for private investors. And with a niche in small to medium-sized local wind farms, it made sense for YARD ENERGY to invest in the first sustainable energy investment platform, Duurzaaminvesteren.nl. This online platform makes it easy for private investors to participate in wind energy projects, with investments starting at €1,000.

Successful and quick

Between August and November 2014 over 180 private investors used the platform raising €1,430,000 to help finance three Dutch wind parks in Buren, Duiven and Vlaardingen.

Generating community support and returns

With the rise of crowdfunding and the growing demand and political will to let citizens participate in new wind farms, the opportunity to invest is open to all.

Crowdfunding not only creates a new funding channel for sustainable energy, but it also generates financial returns for investors - in addition to the long-term benefit of a sustainable energy infrastructure.
