Welsh Water obtained a £250 million loan from the European Investment Bank for renewable energy. The loan is expected to help raise the percentage of power generated from green sources such as wind, sun, water and anaerobic digestion (AD) from 20% to 30% by next year.

Welsh Water’s main project is the conversion of Five Fords sewage system into an energy park, consolidating it with hydro and solar power and implementing UK’s first project to add biomethane gas into the national gas distribution network.


An additional AD plant is developed which will generate energy using the water treated on-site and deliver it to around 3,000 households.
 

The company's Commercial Director mentioned that the company's main objective is the provision of best affordable services, but to deliver this they must find the proper funding for their investment programmes, drive down their costs, and make the company more efficient.
