The Port of Milford Haven has switched its energy provider to enable 100% of its electricity usage to come from renewable sources.

Octopus Energy has been selected for an energy contract to support the port’s commitment to renewable energy. Octopus Energy only supplies energy that is from renewable energy sources and takes power from wind, water and solar as well as energy generated from the natural breakdown of food and farm waste.

Tam Bardell, estate efficiency manager at the port, said: “We already export more renewable electricity than we use and by switching to Octopus Energy we are continuing our work towards lowering our direct impact in the current climate emergency, and doing what we can to contribute towards the UK’s net zero targets. Every step that anyone can make to help reduce their contribution to global warming is key.”

He added that to help tackle its carbon emissions the port has already invested heavily in renewable energy and efficiency with technology including solar panels, heat pumps, insulation, biomass, LED lighting, electric vehicles, marine renewables development and smart energy innovations.
