Anglian Water is committed to making increased use of renewable energy as a key part of our strategy to reaching carbon net zero by 2030. We are already generating solar energy on several of our sites and plan to bring forward more with the support of forward-thinking Councils.

It takes a substantial amount of power to source, treat and pump water and wastewater across the region to our six million customers. This has a significant impact on our carbon footprint. Unlike more traditional forms of energy generation, solar is a renewable energy which for us means it is available, can be accessed at most of our sites and has long term potential to enable a transition from other energy forms. By harnessing energy from renewable sources, we can help power our operations and seek to significantly reduce our carbon emissions and so help protect the environment for future generations.

Anglian Water with the assistance of renewable energy experts, have identified several of our water treatment works, water recycling centres and pumping stations which are suitable for solar panel arrays. The renewable energy generated by solar panels will help power these sites and reduce our carbon emissions. Anglian Water wholeheartedly supports the Councils’ commitment ‘to responding positively to climate change’ and stated goal of becoming ‘a carbon neutral area across the lifetime of the plan’.
