Our sustainable energy partnership with Haven Power
Since becoming Edgbaston’s official energy partner in December 2018, the venue has been working closely with Haven Power to develop a full business sustainability strategy to help us work towards becoming the most sustainable cricket venue in the UK.
Haven Power strives to help change the way energy is generated, supplied and used for a better future. Our partnership is a good example of two organisations with similar aspirations to move towards a sustainable future.
In order to establish a sustainability strategy that meets the needs of Edgbaston, we undertook one of Haven Power’s dynamic Accelerator Workshops to help identify new opportunities and potential hidden value, to optimise energy usage and deliver results.
As part of the sustainability strategy, Haven Power will be supplying 100% of the electricity to Edgbaston Stadium, exclusively from renewable sources.
The majority of the electricity supplied is generated with responsibly-sourced, compressed wood pellets, a form of sustainable biomass with a purpose of enabling a zero carbon, low cost energy future and producing 86% less carbon than coal-generated energy.
