Innovation is Key to the Success of Energy sector in Wales


Wales needs to get smart

The Welsh Assembly’s natural resources minister Carl Sargeant AM will today call on the energy industry to offer innovative and novel solutions to smart energy in Wales.

His comments will be part of his keynote speech at today’s Smart Energy Wales conference in Cardiff.

Sargeant will say:

“In July I published Green Growth Wales: Local Energy, presenting a vision of communities and businesses using locally generated electricity and heat from a range of sources to supply local demand and minimise dependence on central generation.

“Central to that vision is connecting generation within communities and the smarter use of technology and storage to reduce dependence on major grid infrastructure.”
