Hosted by Anglian Water’s CEO Peter Simpson, HBS New Energies were crowned joint winners of the ‘Drop CO2 Operational Carbon Award. Having played a vital part in the integrated supply chain, HBS New Energies received the award in recognition of the solar PV installations completed for Anglian Water.

HBS had previously completed three PV projects for Anglian, installing solar arrays to Hall their newest and most advance water treatment works in Lincolnshire and at their Water Recycling Centre’s in Witham and Rayleigh.

These sites are now saving nearly 50% on their daytime energy costs through solar energy, with the carbon savings providing a significant contribution towards their carbon reduction targets.
