Awel Aman Tawe

The Venture

Established in 1998, we are leaders in the field of community based renewable energy. We have many years’ experience of developing and advising on community schemes, including wind, solar, biomass and hydro; and have implemented energy efficiency measures across thousands of homes and community centres in south Wales. With our pioneering community windfarm, our solar pv cooperative Egni, and our absolute commitment to local benefits from local resources, our work has been recognised nationally and internationally by a growing number of prestigious awards.

In addition to developing practical solutions, we are committed to raising awareness of climate change through a sustained programme of information, communication and consultation. We have worked with hundreds of schools and community groups, and our innovative Arts and Climate Change programme has engaged over 2000 people in exploring their own experiences and concerns regarding global warming.

Current Projects

Community Wind Farm: We are at the final stages before building our pioneering community windfarm. This has had a long and challenging history from its first beginnings in 1998 to its final completion next year. Read more about AAT windfarm history…

Awel: We are about to launch a share offer to raise finance for the community windfarm. See Awel if you’re interested in investing in this innovative scheme.

Egni: We launched Wales’ first Solar PV co-operative in 2014, raising £171,000 and installing solar PV schemes on 5 community buildings in south Wales. We are about to launch our second share offer for a second phase of community solar PV. See Egni if you’re interested in investing in this.

Ynni’r Fro: Awel Aman Tawe supports communities across south Wales to develop renewable energy schemes of their own. We have been doing this for 5 years.
