After lunch Sir Vince presented the first ever David Green Award to the winner, SEaB Energy.

Their waste to energy units are an excellent embodiment of the vision of Future South which is that: “the development of a low carbon, green economy in the South will help stimulate sustainable economic growth, create jobs and reduce our carbon footprint. The region will become the national leader and internationally recognised for its low carbon, green economy. Sustainability will be at the heart of the sub-region’s success in generating economic growth, prosperity and improving quality of life.”


We dream of a world where waste is the fuel, there are no more diesel generators and everyone can produce their own power from their own waste...
