Sponsoring the event for the fourth successive year, Welsh Governmentâ€™s continued backing for Smart Energy Wales demonstrates a consistent awareness of the importance of the sector, and a firm commitment to helping Welsh households, businesses and communities reap the benefits of this fast-moving sector.
â€œWhen we started Smart Energy Wales four years ago, many of the things we talked about were concepts and aspirations. Now we are talking about actual products and projects that are changing peopleâ€™s lives. Welsh Governmentâ€™s sponsorship is important as it shows its commitment to the sector and is a platform to showcase the work it is doing through its Smart Living programme.â€�
Lesley Griffiths, said:
We have a long-standing commitment to a smarter and low carbon future to develop a prosperous low carbon future. Smart energy offers significant business opportunities and economic benefits for Wales, as well as helping us to achieve our low carbon ambitions.â€�
