SWEA are contracted to provide the Development Officer service for Welsh Government’s Ynni’r Fro Programme across a large part of Wales, including Carmarthenshire. The support provided (by Ben Ferguson-Walker) from this service has been a significant factor in setting up Carmarthenshire Energy. SWEA is a well established educational charity with a wide range of current and past projects in Wales and the South West of England.
Steve Hack, a Director of Seren Energy, has been a key contributor and founder member of Carmarthenshire Energy. As a leading developer of renewable energy, specialising in wind turbine consultancy and site development, Seren also tendered for and were appointed as one of our developer partners during 2012. They are based in Clydach, near Swansea.
MCG is a Welsh language and community development initiative based in the Gwendraeth Valley. Through our Chairman Neil Lewis, MCG has been a key supporting organisation in setting up CEL. MCG have delivered two RDP funded projects focusing on low carbon living, and have recently made great progress with developing fuel clubs as a way of tackling high oil prices and fuel poverty. They are building a small sustainable energy team on this basis, and CEL looks forward to developing this association.
The Environment Partnership takes responsibility for managing, supporting and promoting environmental and sustainability issues in Carmarthenshire, in line with the Environment Strategy for Wales and the Welsh Government’s vision for a more Sustainable Wales. One element of this is the provision of small grants to local groups, and CEL has benefited from this funding as acknowledged on the Support and Funders page. Additional to this, the partnership has been a useful network to participate in, and CEL currently fulfils a key role in reporting to CEL on progress with sustainable energy at community level in the county.
