Severn Wye Energy Agency
Severn Wye Energy Agency is a charity and non-profit company working to improve the sustainability and wellbeing of businesses, individuals and communities by improving energy efficiency and reducing costs.
Through the Target 2020 programme, we offer SMEs across Gloucestershire and Worcestershire free energy efficiency surveys, advice and improvement suggestions. Businesses who then choose to invest in energy saving measures can claim back 35% of the installation costs through the programme, provided by the European Regional Development Fund.
Severn Wye also run the commercial energy tariff-switching service WyeSwitch, where we secure the best value energy contracts for businesses, and re-invest the commission earned from the providers back into local projects that help alleviate poverty, improve health and promote sustainable communities. It’s a new approach to energy brokering where everybody wins – businesses pay less for their energy, and the community benefits without any cost to the company.
Target 2020 feels perfectly placed to be sponsoring this year’s Sustainable Manufacturing Award. Sustainability is in our DNA – and working towards it is one of Severn Wye’s key charitable aims. We have been fortunate enough to work with dozens of manufacturers across the region, all embracing the opportunity to not only create quality products, but build towards a long and prosperous future for everybody involved. It’s a great privilege to be part of such a showcase of excellence.
