Dale accepting an Ashden Award from Al Gore

This year we brought the first turbines to Bristol – three of them, all turning to supply power to the Bristol Port Company at Avonmouth Docks – our latest (and biggest) Merchant Wind Power scheme. Together these stunning turbines provide up to half the power used by the docks – in a super setting right alongside the Severn Estuary. Environment meets Industry at Avonmouth docks, and nothing symbolises that better than modern windmills.

And another prize! Al Gore presented Ecotricity with the world’s leading green energy prize at the Ashden Awards – and funnily enough it was for our pioneering Merchant Wind Power initiative, bringing wind energy to large industrial users.
