According to a story in Environmental Finance, Wind Prospect Group, a global wind developer, has launched a corporate retail “Green Energy Bond” in the UK market with the aim of raising £10 million ($16 million). The 4 year bond has a similar structure to the ‘ecobond’ issued by Ecotricity last December. More at http://www.environmental-finance.com/news/view/1737

    These green energy bonds may be growing as a result of the recent (2006
    onwards) push for ‘green growth’, a ‘dumbed down’ version of Sustainable Development.

    There are a number of ‘green energy’ schemes in Canada for instance that are
    actually hydro power schemes for mining ventures currently off-grid…

    Another case for good governance?
