Edgbaston to use 100% renewable energy

Gareth Roberts, commercial director at Warwickshire CCC, said: “We’re thrilled to secure this new partnership with Haven Power. Having secured the partnership, our team will work alongside Haven Power in developing a full business sustainability strategy, which can help us work towards becoming the most sustainable cricket venue in the UK.”
