The energy sector is one of NEFCO’s priority areas. We support investments in renewable energy in order to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and thereby mitigate climate change.
Our loan portfolio for renewable energy projects comprises investments in wind farms and solar plants, small-scale hydropower, extraction of methane at waste disposal sites, thermal energy, wood-based bioenergy, as well as usage of agricultural residues for the production of biofuels. In most of these projects, our clients have managed to combine energy-efficiency measures with investments in renewable energy. We have also financed feasibility studies and reports assessing possibilities to turn waste into energy or make use of logging residues for bioenergy.
