Abundance: Investments From UK Renewable Energy


Launched in 2011, Abundance became the first regulated crowdfunding platform. It's a simple idea. To link up communities and individuals with Renewable Energy Projects and make it possible for everyone to share in the benefits of clean energy production.

Abundance Offers Investments In Renewable Energy Projects Which Pay Regular Cash Returns

Abundance is a leading direct investment platform offering Debentures in individual renewable energy projects that generate something good for the environment and society, as well as a long-term income.

With a choice of projects offering different Debenture types and no fee for investing, Abundance projects can be a useful part of a diversified investment portfolio. Investors choose exactly which projects they wish to invest in and how much. What all the projects have in common is the offer of steady, long-term returns of between 6-9% IRR over a 15-20 year period.

Capital and interest payments are made every six months, with investors free to choose whether to reinvest or withdraw at no cost. Every project works towards making your future, as well as that of the planet and society, a little more secure.

As with any investment product there are risks. Part or all of your original invested capital may be at risk and any return on investment depends on the success of the project invested in. All our products are long-term investments and may not be readily realisable. Estimates are no guarantee of actual return. Consider all risks before investing.

Abundance is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (525432).

Crowdfunding And Peer-To-Peer Risk Warning

When a platform has been assessed and approved by a SIPP or SSAS operator, this does not imply that any loan or investment opportunity is endorsed in any way. A SIPP or SSAS operator's due diligence review is limited to ensuring the processes and procedures of the platform are in line with both FCA and HMRC principles.  It's entirely your responsibility for carrying out your own due diligence on any loan or investment opportunity before agreeing to lend or invest your pension money on a platform. As a SIPP or SSAS operator will continually review platforms from a regulatory perspective, it's possible for a platform to become 'unapproved' if something changes.

With peer-to-peer lending, your capital is at risk if you lend to individuals and businesses.  You may lose some or all of the capital lent if the borrower defaults and is unable to meet its liabilities. Historic loan default rates are not necessarily indicative of future default rates.  In addition, lending is an illiquid investment, which means you may not be able to access the capital you lend for the duration of the loan period, even if the platform offers a secondary market.  Investing in any business involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Crowdfunding is generally targeted at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand the risks and make their own investment decisions, based on their knowledge, experience and financial capacity. Neither crowdfunding nor peer-to-peer lending is covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. The tax treatment of your investment is dependent on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of crowdfunding investment or peer-to-peer lending, you should consult a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.


As SIPPclub neither advises on, nor arranges, nor recommends specific investments or strategies, we're unable to say whether a SIPP or SSAS or any investment within it is right for you. Ultimately, it’s your money and your decision, and you should only proceed once you're satisfied you've undertaken sufficient due diligence. If you need advice, you should speak to your trusted adviser, or you could find a local adviser from Unbiased.co.uk.  Alternatively, we'd be pleased to introduce to a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.
