David Clubb, Director of RenewableUK Cymru, said:

“We work closely with Welsh Government on a number of important issues, and its sponsorship of this event clearly demonstrates its desire to support the sector. Renewable energy will be a key part of Wales’ future economic success, and Welsh Government is well-placed to balance the needs of communities, businesses and the environment as we move to a low-carbon, sustainable future.”

Alun Davies, Minister for Natural Resources and Food , said:

“Welsh Government’s sponsorship of the Cardiff Conference is a continuation of our partnership with RenewableUK Cymru and business, to take forward the renewables industry in Wales. Together we are making strong progress in our mutual aims of harnessing Wales’ energy potential in a way that creates a sustainable, low carbon economy for Wales.”
