Founding Year: 2012
Lumo is a French crowdfunding website which enables citizens to invest directly in renewable energy projects. Lumo works with energy projects that generate electricity using established renewable technologies like wind, solar or hydro. Those energy projects are selected according to a charter which guaranties their sustainability, their territorial anchoring, their transparency & their contribution to public interest.
On www.lumo-france.com, citizens can browse the projects and invest as little as € 25 in the one of their choice. The revenue produced by the energy project pays back the investor, with interests, over every year of its investment horizon.
In France, Lumo is pioneer in offering to crowdfund renewable energy installations through bond acquisition.
