Green energy businesses are “crying out” for investment, according to P2P lending specialists F&P Sponsors, and are increasingly turning to the alternative financing sector to get the money they need.
F&P has worked extensively with companies in the ‘green’ sector, helping them find the investment they need to grow. In a press release, they’ve reported ‘significant interest’ following their attendance at the recent Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources and World Biogas exhibition held in NEC.
Recently, the P2P lending specialists secured funding for BioDynamic UK, which owns and operates an AD plant in Colwick, Nottinghamshire. BioDynamic UK had been rejected 25 times in attempts to win funding, before F&P secured them £1.5 million in just two weeks.
Edward Williams, a former financer and specialist investor, was recently appointed by F&P to focus on the green and clean technology sector. He also delivered a speech at the exhibition about the positive effect of F&P’s alternative funding services.
He said in a statement: “We had a number of people visit the stand that have some interesting projects in the pipeline, and following my speech, several people approached me that were interested to hear more about how P2P could help them make their projects a reality.”
