Some of the research carried out at SPECIFIC by the Sêr Solar team
The finalists for this year’s Wales Green Energy Awards have been announced and include an offshore wind farm, two solar installations and an agricultural renewable energy demonstration site. Now in their third year, the awards are organised by RenewableUK Cymru and celebrate the success and achievements of the green energy industry in Wales.
The panel of judges is made up of award sponsors as well as Jane Davidson, Director of INSPIRE at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, and Chris Kelsey from Media Wales. The judging panel will be chaired by David Clubb, Director of RenewableUK Cymru. Winners will be announced in a lunchtime ceremony on Friday 6 November in St David’s Hotel, Cardiff.
David Clubb said: “We are always delighted by the quality of submissions for the Wales Green Energy Awards, and this year is no exception. Competition for the awards has been fierce, with 14 nominations for the Advocate award alone.
“Each of the shortlisted individuals or organisations should feel extremely proud of what they have achieved over the last 12 months, often in the face of challenging political and policy decisions.”
The Sêr Solar project is a finalist in the category for Contribution to Skills and Training. The project was launched in October 2013 and is funded by the Welsh Government’s Sêr Cymru programme. Its overall aim is to deliver world leading scientific research leading to greater efficiencies and low cost manufacturing processes that support the growth of the solar industry in Wales. Sêr Solar collaborates with universities from across the UK and their research breakthroughs ensure Wales is at the forefront of photovoltaic research.
