Green GEN Cymru, part of the Bute Energy Group, is announcing Green GEN Towy Teifi, a renewable energy network which will connect clean, green energy to the national grid and help rural communities decarbonise heat, power and transport.
The project will link Bute Energy’s proposed Lan Fawr Energy Park in West Wales to a new National Grid Substation proposed at Llandyfaelog near Carmarthen.
The Welsh Government has set clear targets for more renewable energy, helping to stop the climate change that is threatening our livelihoods, landscapes, and wildlife. In West Wales, the existing electricity network does not have the capacity to connect new renewables to homes and businesses. To end the use of fossil fuels, we need new infrastructure and quickly.
Green GEN Towy Teifi has been launched to meet this need, with an additional aim to contribute to a more resilient and reliable network for the region. It could reduce pressure on the existing electricity grid, supporting green businesses and enabling green heating, and the roll out of electric vehicles across rural Wales.
The project could also allow direct connection of community projects and support energy resilience. It will tackle both the energy crisis and the climate crisis, and empower rural communities through investment, jobs and skills, enabling communities across Wales to live modern electric lives, supporting the Welsh Government’s target for electricity to be 100% renewable by 2035.
