By John Mulgrew

A Belfast finance business which offers firms an alternative to bank lending is launching a new £30m fund for green energy projects.

Clearpath's Green Energy Fund will be available for new and existing wind farms, and anaerobic digester businesses and projects across Northern Ireland.

Conor Devine and James Gibbons said they set up Clearpath Finance to help businesses and individuals secure cash without going through the traditional banks.

Conor Devine of Clearpath said: "We are committed to helping green energy projects in Northern Ireland.

"Continued growth and investment into this sector is vital as we move to harvest renewable energy sources.

James Gibbons of Clearpath said: "Obtaining and delivering finance in this current market can be extremely difficult.

"At Clearpath, we have identified the support and solutions needed for businesses who are seeking to finance or refinance their business or project at more competitive finance rates than those currently on offer.

"We will continue to provide new finance streams to businesses across NI."
