Awel Aman Tawe is a pioneering community energy charity based in South Wales.
In the Podcast Chloe Uden meets Dan McCallum, one of the founders of AAT and the person responsible for the day-to-day operations of the organisation.
He talks about the journey the group has been on since 1998 and how Awel Aman Tawe is working to make a difference to the lives of people at the top of the Swansea and Amman Valleys.
The group aims to bring clean electricity, jobs and regeneration to the villages near the Mynydd y Gwrhyd. It has planning permission to build a two-turbine community wind farm high up on the Gwrhyd, a £6million asset that will bring low carbon energy and construction contracts to the area, together with an annual income stream from the sale of electricity of some £200,000 that will help to fund local projects.
This podcast has been made with support from Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and is part of Regen’s ongoing programme to support community energy.
