Nicola Griffiths
Portfolio Executive

“Our prime drivers are tackling climate change, job creation, retaining wealth in the Welsh economy and engaging people in energy. The funding from the Development Bank of Wales is enabling us to accelerate our programme of installations across South Wales; tackling climate change and reducing carbon emissions right at the very heart of our local communities.”

Dan McCallum, Egni Director and Manager of Awel Aman Tawe

A £2.12 million loan from the Local Energy Fund to Egni Co-op is being used to help increase the amount of renewable generation owned in Wales.

Set up in 2014 by Awel Aman Tawe (AAT), a community energy charity which has been operating for 21 years, Egni has already completed the largest rooftop solar installation in Wales on the Geraint Thomas National Velodrome of Wales in Newport with over 2000 panels.

Egni is using the funding from the Development Bank of Wales to deliver solar panel installations on 128 premises including community buildings, businesses and schools across South Wales – over 4MWp has already been installed, making it one of the largest rooftop solar co-ops in the UK.
