Haven Power has secured a contract with Warwickshire County Cricket Club to provide 100 per cent renewable energy.
The two-year deal will provide power to Edgbaston Stadium and was agreed by Warwickshire CCC’s long-standing energy brokers Amber Energy.
The partnership will support the club’s long-term goal of becoming the most sustainable cricket venue in the country.
As part of the contract Haven, which is part of Drax Group, will be able to maximise sponsorship opportunities during events including five matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup, the opening Test of the Specsavers Ashes Series between England and Australia and Vitality Blast Finals Day.
Gareth Roberts, commercial director at Warwickshire County Cricket Club, said: “We’re thrilled to secure this new partnership with Haven Power and our thanks go to Amber Energy for brokering the agreement based on the current supply rates and commercial opportunity, but also the ability of a provider to realise our sustainability ambitions.
“Powering the stadium through renewable energy sources forms a major part of this.”
Paul Sheffield, chief operating officer at Haven Power, added: “We’re delighted to be official energy partner for Warwickshire CCC.
“We’ll be supplying 100 per cent renewable electricity, as well as looking at ways that Edgbaston Stadium can gain efficiency and support their ambition to become the most sustainable cricket venue in the country.
“As part of Drax Group Haven Power strives to help change the way energy is generated, supplied and used for a better future.
“This partnership is a good example of two organisations with similar aspirations to move towards a sustainable future.”
In October Yu Energy announced it had signed a deal with Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club to supply its energy.
