The Zero Carbon Britain project at CAT has won the award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Public Awareness of Green Energy’ at the inaugural Wales Green Energy Awards. Organised by RenewableUK Cymru, the award ceremony took place at Cardiff Bay on Wednesday.
Danielle Paffard, Zero Carbon Britain Communications Officer, was at the ceremony to accept the award. She said: We are absolutely delighted to receive this prestigious award, with the calibre of all nominated projects testament to a thriving renewables industry on the increase in Wales. The Zero Carbon Britain report demonstrates that a 100% renewable energy system would be able to meet our power demand at all times, with additional benefits including 1.5 million jobs.”
By recognising the Zero Carbon Britain project with this award, RenewableUK has shown its ambition in growing the renewables sector, delivering a new green economy and a safe and sustainable energy supply for Wales.
At CAT we are committed to continuing our work raising awareness about the importance of renewable energy in reducing the impacts of climate change, cutting pollution, protecting our natural environment and leaving a safe and sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.
In the ZCB scenario we use renewable sources – including wind power, solar power, wave power and biomass – from around the UK, whilst making sure we can always keep the lights on and maintain a modern lifestyle.
We welcome the ‘Energy Awards’ initiative to showcase the thriving renewables sector in Wales, and the benefits available to local people.
