The Energy Service support forms part of a long-term commitment by Welsh Government to deliver a stronger, fairer and greener Wales. It provides technical, commercial and procurement advice to turn energy projects into reality.
Since its launch in 2018, the Energy Service has helped the public sector and community enterprises to secure more than £155 million in investment from a range of sources, for decarbonisation projects across all 22 local authorities in Wales.
Julie James, Welsh Government Minister for Climate Change, said: “Since 2018, the Welsh Government Energy Service programme has been making an impact right across Wales. This includes working with the public sector and community enterprises to reduce energy use, generate locally owned, renewable energy and lower carbon emissions.
“We need a Team Wales approach to tackling climate change, one where we all work together and play our part. So, it’s great to see the wide range of support that’s been provided over the past year, helping us to reach our ambition of a Net Zero Wales by 2050.”
